Help assess Lake Champlain water conditions around the lake. Complete our cyanobacteria monitor form if you're interested in monitoring during the 2017 season or want to attend a training session to learn more about the lake. Share this invite with other lake lovers to help engage more people.

Monitoring will begin mid-June and run through at least Labor Day with as many monitors as possible continuing to collect data until the end of September. Both new and returning monitors need to receive annual training. Participants must have weekly access to the same shoreline location (either public or private) and be able to file online reports. The program provides critical data on where and when blooms are happening and is relied on by citizens as well as health, environmental and recreation agencies. It also adds to understanding on the trigger for blooms so we can reduce their frequency. Data from the monitoring program is regularly uploaded to the Lake Champlain cyanobacteria data tracker map hosted by the Vermont Department of health and accessible to anyone with internet access.

Training sessions are free and open to the public. Presentations will last about an hour and provide background about cyanobacteria, guidance on how to differentiate it from other lake phenomena, instructions for assessing water conditions, and actions to take to reduce blooms. Contact us at lcc@ lakechamplaincommittee.org or (802) 658-1414 if you have questions or would like to help organize a training session for your community.
