The goal of this integrated monitoring report is to present a snapshot of the monitoring that MVCA undertook during the 2016 season. It is meant to replace the individualized lake reports previously created for the Watershed Watch (WW) program. As such, the emphasis of the report is on lake monitoring but also includes water levels and flow, snow pack, and fish data. Each subwatershed within the Mississippi Valley will be on a five year rotation for this more in depth analysis, with the Clyde River subwatershed being in focus for 2016. We are hoping that this strategy will give readers a more holistic understanding of the watershed and potentially shed some light on the collected results.
