About Pleasant Pond:
This summer, we are launching a new & evolving series of interactive data visualizations, or VIZZES.
The first of these focuses on lake water transparency in 1,046 Maine lakes. Explore a chart of Secchi values to see how ‘your’ lake ranks among all surveyed lakes. Click on a lake’s Secchi data and find this lake’s location on a map.
Go directly to this VIZ by clicking on the thumbnail, below. See this and other maps on our Data Visualizations page.
On lakesofmaine.org you can find:
2018 Lake Data & Reports are now available!
After you search for your lake, go to Water Quality > Introduction. Reports are under DEP Water Quality Overviews. Updated data are available by clicking on any of the menu tabs.
Most water quality data on this website have been collected by Lake Stewards of Maine’s volunteer citizen lake scientists, many of whom have been monitoring lakes for multiple decades. Here is Bob’s story.
Click here to view current water quality conditions on a representative sample of Maine lakes during summer, or view which lakes have experienced ice-cover in the fall and ice-out in the spring.
LakesOfMaine.org sees more than 1,000,000 pageviews annually.
