Water Testing

Here are the latest results regarding Lake Beulah’s water quality.

Secchi Testing

Every year, volunteers collect water samples using Secchi Disk readings from lakes in Wisconsin. This data is calibrated with a mathematical model and satellite imagery to achieve the most accurate readings of water quality on over 8000 lakes in the state.

The Wisconsin DNR uses data from both the Landsat 5 and Landsat 7 satellites; volunteers schedule their testings based on the day that the satellite passes overhead.
