Abstract
A Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program initiated by the Illinois EPA in 1981 was continued in 1992. Citizens were trained to measure Secchi disc transparency, total depth, and record field observations from a boat at designated sites on their chosen lake. The report provides a historical perspective of the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program and describes program objectives and rationale. Methods for volunteer training and data handling/analysis are described; 1992 program results presented and discussed; and trends analyzed. Two hundred and forty-six volunteers participated in monitoring 136 lakes in 1992; 134 lakes had data for 4 or more sampling periods and are included in the report.
