Monitor Your Lake

We need your help to keep an eye on water quality in your lake.

With more than 180 lakes within our boundaries, we can’t sample every lake as often as we’d like. So we rely on a team of citizen volunteers to take monthly samples. We use that data that we use to monitor trends in water quality and help us know how to best protect your lake.

If you're interested in participating, contact Kailey Kreatz: or (952) 641-4501. 


  • Must have access to a watercraft with an anchor
  • Take one sample per month from May to September
  • Deliver samples to MCWD offices (15320 Minnetonka Boulevard, Minnetonka, MN 55345)

The MCWD will provide all equipment and training.
