2016 Water Quality Report Is Now Available

A summary of the data that was collected from measuring water clarity and sampling for phosphorus and chlorophyll–a can be accessed by clicking the “Water Quality” tab.

The last 4 pages in the report presents the data that has been collected since1995 in a graphic format for each of the trophic status indicators of Moon Lake’s productivity and plots a trend line for each of these indicators. The trend continues to be positive. If you want a further explanation of these indicators and the numerical index, TSI, that is used to measure the productivity of a lake see my “Lake Notes” article in the April 2016 Newsletter.
