Water Quality Monitoring

Lake and stream monitoring provides the information necessary to manage the health of Isanti County’s lakes, rivers and streams for recreation, wildlife, and consumption.  Upon request, the SWCD contracts with lake groups and other organizations to provide water quality monitoring services, including monitoring plan development, water monitoring and summary reports. 

The SWCD currently works with the following groups to conduct water quality monitoring: Blue Lake Improvement District, Francis Lake Improvement Association, Francis Lake Improvement District, Green Lake Improvement District, Long Lake Improvement District, and Oxford Township.
