A Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program initiated by the Illinois EPA in 1981 was continued in 1985. Citizens were trained to measure Secchi disc transparency, total depth, and record field observations from a boat at designated sites on their chosen lake. Readings were to be taken at least twice a month from May through October. The report provides a historical perspective of the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program, and describes program objectives and rationale.
