Lake Water Testing

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.

This important program relies on volunteers and interested residents are encouraged to attend an upcoming informational session (to be held in the Board of Commissioners Auditorium 1200 N. Telegraph Rd. in Pontiac, Michigan) to learn more about how they can get involved:

  • Tuesday, February 6th from 7:00pm-8:00pm
  • Saturday, February 24th from 10:00am-11:00am
