Baseline Study on Fremont Lake & its Connecting Waterways

Former Project Manager:

In 2008 the Fremont Area Community Foundation funded a proposal for The Fremont Lake Association and the City of Fremont to work with the Annis Water Resources Institute (AWRI) of Grand Valley State University to conduct a general assessment of water quality conditions in Fremont Lake and its connecting waterways.

The goal of this project was to conduct a general assessment of water quality conditions in Fremont Lake and its connecting waterways. The following tasks were completed as part of this project:

  • Updated land use/land cover map for the Fremont Lake Watershed;

  • Sample site selection;

  • Sample nutrients at each study site;

  • Characterization of th phytoplankton and macrophyte communities;

  • Model pollutant loads in the Fremont Lake Watershed; and

  • Education of watershed stakeholders.

The information generated by this project can provide a baseline snapshot of the current conditions in the Fremont Lake Watershed, which will serve as a basis for future decision-making.
