Lakes Monitoring


Through the Beneficial Use Monitoring Program (BUMP), lake sampling is conducted quarterly at approximately 130 lakes on a five-year rotation schedule.

Data collections include a broad-base of chemical, physical and biological parameters. Surface water quality samples are collected to determine concentrations of various nutrients, cations, anions, metals and turbidity. During periods of stratification additional bottom samples are collected and analyzed. Biological indicators include chlorophyll-a, phytoplankton and zooplankton.

An assessment of physical habitat is conducted at least once during the five year rotation. Bacteria sampling is also be conducted during the recreation season of May through September.

In general, a minimum of three to five stations per reservoir are sampled depending on the size of the reservoir. Stations are located such that they represent the lacustrine, transitional, and riverine zones of the lake.

On many reservoirs, additional sites are monitored, including major arms of the reservoir as appropriate. Vertical profiles for dissolved oxygen (DO), % DO saturation, temperature, pH, salinity, oxidation-reduction potential (redox), specific conductance, and total dissolved solids (TDS) are recorded at one-meter intervals from the lake surface to the lake bottom at each location. Readings for secchi disk depth and nephelometric turbidity are also taken at all sample stations.
