We frequently receive requests for data that is used in various projects throughout the state of Indiana as well as data that is used for regional projects.  We are working on efforts to pull this information into one place to showcase the hard work of our program staff, apprentices, and citizen scientists.  If you have seen or have been a part of any reports that have used Indiana Clean Lakes Program data or data from the Volunteer Lake Monitoring Program please share those reports with us so we can link them to our website and highlight the amazing work of our affiliates.
