Charlie Turner Reports:
Hi all; Just completed the first sampling of Panther Pond (April 29, 2013), and thought you might like to know the results. The Secchi disc came in at 7.6 meters, which is very good. This was expected, as it has been quite dry lately, and the winter melt was slow and even, meaning that little runoff occurred. Also, the O2 was around 11 ppm from top to bottom. This is because the spring turnover just took place less less than two weeks ago. When the lake turns over, it mixes the entire lake thoroughly, resulting in the O2 consistency from top to bottom. The 11 reading was also a bit higher than in previous years at this time, so that is also a plus. In toto we are off to a fine start, letâ€™s hope that it stays that way.
