The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency initiated the Illinois 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. Recent lake management activities or other factors which could impact the lake also are documented.
