Report on Maine Lakes Now Available
The Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP) has released the 2007 Maine Lakes Report, which is produced by the Maine VLMP with support from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
Highlights of the Maine Lakes Report include water quality summary data for more than 400 Maine lakes; invasive aquatic plant screening survey data for more than 350 Maine lakes; information regarding training options for volunteer monitors; and an overview of how lake systems function.
“The Maine Lakes Report is the only annual document of its type that summarizes the quality of Maine lakes. It is completely unique, and there’s nothing else out there quite like it,” says Scott Williams, the program’s executive director. “The report provides comprehensive information on a broad range of indicators of lake health, as well as information about how we can protect our lakes for the future.”
