Project Information

Upper Kissimmee Chain Of Lakes
Field Project Managers:William Davis
Project Codes:UKCL
Project Description:
The Upper Kissimmee Chain of Lakes water quality monitoring program includes five major lakes in the Kissimmee Chain: East Lake Tohopekaliga, Lake Tohopekaliga, Lake Cypress, Lake Hatchineha, and Lake Kissimmee. The water quality monitoring program provides a water quality and nutrient loading data base for 1.Applying eutrophication models to develop and refine nutrient loading targets for the five major lakes in the chain 2.Determining the long and short term trends necessary to determine the effectiveness of basin management, and identifying potential problem areas in terms of water quality degradation and nutrient loadings 3.Assessing the in-lake effects of basin management plan implementations and lake draw downs and 4.Investigating the relationship between the lakes in the chain and the impact on downstream water bodies. The program began in 1981 with 40 water quality monitoring sits. It presently has 9 stations.
