Adirondack Lake Assessment Program (ALAP)

2018 marks the 21st year of the Adirondack Lake Assessment Program (ALAP), the largest, most professional, volunteer-driven water quality monitoring program in the Adirondack Park. ALAP is a partnership between PROTECT, the Adirondack Watershed Institute at Paul Smith’s College (AWI), and project sponsors and lake monitors. ALAP was established in 1998 to help develop a comprehensive and up-to-date database of water quality conditions in the Park.
