Water quality testing results for 2016 now available

As part of the Michigan Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program, the CLWA sponsors comprehensive scientific testing of Crystal Lake’s water. Monitoring provides advance warning, so that early action can be taken to protect Crystal Lake. The latest results are consistent with past years and show no significant problems. The full data report is available here: http://crystallakewatershed.org/pdfs/CLMP-Crystal-Benzie-100066.pdf The Benzie Conservation District carries out the testing on CLWA’s behalf, continuing the practice of water testing that was established by CLWA’s predecessor organizations decades ago. This invaluable body of data enables CLWA and other lake stewards to detect water quality degradation at an early stage, before any problems become extensive and irreversible.
