Minnesota Lake Monitoring Program

Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA)

This site offers information on the Citizen Lake Monitoring Program (CLMP). CLMP combines the technical resources of the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and the volunteer efforts of citizens statewide who collect water-quality data on their lakes. The program greatly multiplies the MPCA's water-quality sampling capabilities, while volunteers learn about the water quality of lakes in their region and the causes and effects of lake pollution.
