Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness Lake Monitoring

If you are planning a trip into the BWCAW this summer we have a great opportunity for you to monitor water quality in lakes while you are there. Pick up a packet from our office before you head out. This packet will contain small data sheets for you to fill out while on the lake, a light-weight secchi disk to measure transparency of the water, and information about aquatic invasive species. When you are back from your trip, just return the packet with filled out data cards to our office. We will pass the data you collected on to the state to be entered into the state wide water quality data center.
Call or email Derrick Passe at Derrick.passe@co.lake.mn.us or 218-834-8575 for more information.
