issue of The Water Line focuses on the current projects
of the University of Missouri Limnology Laboratory.
instance, you can read about some of the results from our
Table Rock Monitoring. Another
project is the Statewide Lake Assessment,
which has monitored Missouri’s lakes since 1978. A
short term project we’re working on we call the “Daily
Sampling” and it involves sampling 3 reservoirs
every day for 100 days. The goal is to see how precipitation
influences our regularly measured parameters.
We have more
projects running than we have the space to describe! Some
of the other projects are:
long term study of Lake of the Ozarks
A once-weekly (for 52 weeks) monitoring of 16 northwestern
study monitoring the distribution and causes of toxic
study of chlorine by-products in drinking water
highlight our other projects in future Water Line articles.
Until then, keep an eye out for us on Missouri’s lakes.
You just might see us out there!
