Lake Monitoring Data

The Mooney Lake Association is partnering with the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District in monitoring lake water quality.

Monitoring data used for lake grades show how one lake measures up compared to other area lakes and indicates the perceived condition of the open water. Three water quality measurements (Total phosphorus, chlorophyll, and secchi disk) are combined to create each lake grade. However, the grade does not reflect the true water quality in a lake body. There are also other factors that contribute to lake condition, including aquatic invasive species (AIS), stormwater runoff, aquatic plants, fisheries, harmful chemicals, and over-use.

The MLA has been testing other parameters since 2012 as a means of determining the true health of our lake.
