Introduction


This web-site is to allow you, the user, to compile and print personalized summary reports for 130 of Iowa’s principle recreational lakes. Searching for your lake of interest is organized alphabetically and done within three different search mechanisms (Lake by Index, Lake by Search, and Lake by County).

The ISU Limnology Lab, assisted by the DNR, has worked to create a computerized data system of Iowa lake water quality data and information. You have access to DNR Fisheries data along with relevant information from the Iowa Lakes Information System and have the capability to download data directly from the Lakes Information System and create printable summary lake reports (“Mini-reports”) specific to your needs. You can choose from a select group of report components, then download and print the desired information.
