2016 New Hampshire Lake Status Reports Are Now Available

Concord, NH – The Volunteer Lake Assessment Program (VLAP) and the Lake Trophic Survey Program (LTSP) at the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES) have released their 2016 water quality reports. Based on data collected by volunteer citizen scientists on 170 lakes and ponds, VLAP created reports for each water body which analyze long-term trends in water quality. Additionally, 11 new trophic reports are available, which are in-depth studies over a three year period on the current status of the selected lakes. Together, these reports summarize chemical, biological, and physical water quality information of individual lakes and ponds around New Hampshire, and join the growing archive of state-wide data in the Lake Information Mapper.
