The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency initiated the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP) in 1981 as a result of growing public interest in lakes and the need to expand the state's data base on lake water quality. The volunteer also records a series of field observations such as water color, suspended sediment and algae, aquatic weeds, and weather conditions. Parameters monitored include total and volatile suspended solids, nitrate+nitrite nitrogen, ammonia nitrogen, and total phosphorus. The report is Volume 3 of the following series of seven reports summarizing the 1988 VLMP.
