2017 monitoring season for Madison's lakes and beaches begins

Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) -- Thanks to citizen scientists, you can keep up with the state of the lakes and beaches in Madison.  

Thursday begins the 2017 monitoring season.  The tests monitor whether the lakes are in good or poor condition through factors like temperature, clarity and other water quality parameters.  For weekly results you can check lakeforecast.org.  

The monitoring is in coordination with the Clean Lakes Alliance.  If you are interested in volunteer opportunities, you can contact them at volunteer@cleanlakesalliance.com.  

Thursday morning on Wake Up Wisconsin we'll be testing the water quality on Lake Monona live with a citizen scientist.  If you miss the reading, you can catch up with the video link attached after the show.
