Monitors sought for area lakes

Print Article

Love to spend time on lakes? Interested in water quality? The Northwest Montana Lakes Volunteer Monitoring Network is looking for lake property owners and/or homeowners, summer cabin owners, recreationists, and just people who are interested in lakes to become volunteer monitors. There are currently 41 lakes in the program, and many are in need of a volunteer including:

Big Therriault Lake, Lincoln County

Dollar Lake, Flathead County

Fish Lake, Flathead County

Foys Lake, Flathead County

Holland Lake, Missoula County

Skyles Lake, Flathead County

Smith Lake, Flathead County

Spencer Lake, Flathead County

Stillwater Lakes, Upper and Lower, Flathead County

Upper Whitefish Lake, Flathead County

Volunteers will receive training and equipment to assist them in data collection. However, volunteers will need their own boat (motorized or non-motorized). Training will be offered this spring and monitoring will begin late spring/early summer of 2019. Volunteers will be asked to monitor their lake(s) twice per month, weather permitting, and will spend one summer day with the Whitefish Lake Institute staff collecting water chemistry data.
