The blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) in Lacamas Lake is currently being monitored by a group of dedicated citizens. The group works with NOAA’s Phytoplankton Monitoring Network. The group has received training in sampling protocol, taking water quality measurements, and Cyanobacteria identification. The group is committed to sampling weekly for one year rain or shine. Microscopes have been provided by the Water Resource Center and the USEPA.
