This report provides a framework to display water quality information collected during the water quality investigation on Swan Lake from 2010-2013, and compares it to historical data where applicable.
The Final Water Quality Report for 2014 is available for download as a PDF here.
To assure the continuity of this effort the Swan Lakers are now collecting water quality information using our own in-house resources. We are fortunate that one of our board members, Tom Bansak, is an assistant director of the Flathead lake Biological Station. He is able to access the required sampling equipment and is skilled in its use. Our vice president, Hugh Corn, donates the use of his pontoon boat on which the sampling is carried out.
AQUATIC INVASIVE SPECIES (AIS) is a serious and growing problem across our country, particularly where there is a concentration of waterways. It is important for each of us to help increase awareness of AIS and share responsibility for controlling their spread.

Like many lakes in Northwest Montana, Swan Lake is known for its pristine water conditions, and Hugh Corn would like to keep it that way.
Corn is the president of the Swan Lakers, a community service organization dedicated to protecting the water quality and other natural resources of Swan Lake and the surrounding area.
