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 Regional Report volume is a compilation of lake monitoring data for 32 lakes in the East-Central Illinois region. A regional lake location map is shown in Figure 1 and a ranking of lakes by average transparency in Figure 2 of this section. Section II contains lake data and individual lake summaries for those Illinois VLMP lakes that were monitored during four or more semi-monthly sampling periods in the 1992 season. Data collected under IEPA's Ambient Lake Monitoring Program in 1992 is also included where available.
