1. To manage a program of water quality monitoring for all participating lake associations.
2. To coordinate the water sampling, transporting of samples and reporting of results between the lake associations and the analytic laboratories as needed.
Off-Season Handling of Sampling Equipment
Once you’re done collecting water samples for the season, it is a good time to check your sampling equipment to ensure that it is ready for the next season:
1. Rinse and dry the collection tube.
2. Place corks in each end of the collection tube to keep the inside clean and to prevent varmints from making a nest in the tube over the winter.
3. Check the marks on your Secchi line: remark the line if the marks have faded, or contact Carolyn Herron to get a new line.
4. Repaint the white Secchi disc if it is chipped or rusted.
5. In the spring dust off your sampling equipment, pick up your coolers at the first COLA meeting, and you are ready to go for another season.
