Plan to Participate in the Great Secchi Dip-In

The Great North American Secchi Dip-in is celebrated each year the first two weeks of July.  This program allows volunteers from around the continent to use the Secchi Disk to measure your lake water clarity and report it.  This program is sponsored by the US EPA and the North American Lake Management Society.  This provides an opportunity to gain a considerable amount of data from lakes all over the North Americas.  One of the goals is also to increase the number of volunteers working on our nations lakes and to spark a public interest in environmental monitoring.  Please consider doing this for your water body. 

Secchi disks can be obtained from www.forestry-suppliers.com, go to that site and search for them.  Aquatechnex will be sampling all of the lakes we work on during this time peroid and reporting that information.  For more information see:
