Abstract

Indian Lake is addressing the problem of aquatic plant overgrowth. The Indian Lake Watershed Association asked our team to determine the cause and severity of the issue. The team developed protocols to survey the Lake, collected data, created a website to report information regarding the overgrowth within the lake, and updates regarding the project, including interactive maps displaying the data to keep the public informed about the situation. Future teams can use these protocols to collect data in a systematic manner, and develop a longitudinal database. The project concluded with a presentation to the Association, and members of the press.
