Inland Lakes Monitoring

Inland lakes are valuable ecological resources and provide tremendous aesthetic, economic, and recreational value for the people of Michigan.  Michigan's unique geographical location provides its citizens with a wealth of freshwater resources including over 11,000 inland lakes.  The Water Resources Division (WRD) works with many agencies and local partners to assess the condition of Michigan’s inland lakes.
