The report is Volume II of a series of seven reports summarizing Illinois EPA's 1992 Illinois Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP). It provides a summary of 1992 VLMP lakes in Northwestern Illinois including a program overview, volunteer participation, and a ranking of lakes on a regional basis. Thirty-eight volunteers recorded a total depth, Secchi disc transparency, and field observations for 20 lakes in Northwestern Illinois between May and October, 1992. Average transparencies ranged from 6-166 inches. Volunteer water quality samples were collected at three lakes once every month from May thru October and ambient lake data, collected by IEPA staff, is presented for seven lakes.
