Maine Volunteer Lake Monitors

January 1st, 1971 - January 1st, 1971 | PROJECT

The Maine Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program (VLMP) trains and supports volunteers who keep and eye on the health of their lakes. Our volunteers measure multiple indicators of lake water quality and screen for the presence of invasive aquatic plants such as variable milfoil. Our mission is to provide protection for the nearly 6,000 lakes in Maine through the acquisition of scientific data, and to raise public awareness about the extraordinary ecological, aesthetic and economic value of our lakes and ponds.
