A. Five years of Green Lake Monitoring – What can it tell us?
Sally Abella (King County Small Lakes Stewardship Program)
- FOGL volunteers began sampling as part of King County Small Lakes Progarm in 2003 taking water level, Secchi depth and temperature weekly at the end of the dock by paddleboat rental (Level 1 sampling). These data have been collected by Billings Middle School students and their teacher, Rebecca Timson, for the past year. In 2005 FOGL added Level 2 sampling, water samples are collected at two mid-lake stations (by Richard and Gayle using kayaks) and the samples are analyzed at the Metro water quality laboratory. These samples are collected 12 times each summer, about every other week from May through Oct. Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) funds Green Lake’s participation in the program.
