MLBMS volunteers sampled the dissolved oxygen levels at the deepest point in the lake 4 times this winter. This is the second year MLBMS has measured dissolved oxygen over the winter. The results show, that while oxygen levels again dropped below the level necessary for fish to survive, the levels did not drop as low as last year. The increase in lake level since last year may be the reason for the higher oxygen levels. The lake level has risen since last fall and hopefully a good spring runoff will continue the trend. Thanks to LICA for lending us the measurement equipment and to Erin Ritchie of LICA for writing up the results and to Don, John Dale and Richard for their participation and work.
