The report is Volume IV 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 West-Central Illinois including a program overview, volunteer participation, and a ranking of lakes on a regional basis. Fifty-two volunteers recorded total depth, Secchi disc transparency, and field observations of 24 lakes in West-Central Illinois between May and October, 1992. Average transparencies ranged from 12-243 inches. Volunteer water quality samples were collected at seven lakes once every month from May thru October and ambient lake data, collected by IEPA staff, is presented for six lakes.
