Water is one of our greatest natural resources and the Oakland County Board of Commissioners recognizes the critical importance of monitoring and protecting our local lakes. The Board and the Oakland County Health Division have partnered with the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) to provide Oakland County residents with free training and equipment to monitor water quality in local lakes this summer via the Cooperative Lakes Monitoring Program (CLMP). The CLMP has been an integral component of Michigan's inland lake monitoring for over 40 years.

Registration for Summer 2018 is currently closed. More than 75 Oakland County lakes will participate in lake monitoring this summer as part of the pilot program.

For those individuals who attended the training on Saturday, May 5, 2018, the presentations are below

For more information about the CLMP, please email Paul Steen at or call (734) 769-5123 x 601.
