A Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program initiated by Illinois EPA in 1981 was continued through 1991. Citizens were trained to measure Secchi disc transparency, total depth, and record field observations from a boat at three sites on their chosen lake, twice per month from May through October. The report provides a summary of the 1990 program conducted in the Southwestern Illinois Region. Nineteen volunteers participated in monitiring thirteen lakes. Regional results are analyzed and compared with statewide results. Individual lake summaries are provided for lakes sampled six or more periods during the season, and data is provided for lakes sampled by the Illinois EPA under the Ambient Lake Monitoring Program.
