Secchi Day lake sampling activities — with many, longtime and dedicated volunteers — has been ongoing since 2006. The 15th annual sampling event continued on Aug. 15, 2020, with all the necessary precautions to ensure everyone was safe. The 16th Annual Secchi Day on Beaver Lake will be held on Aug. 21, 2021. Secchi Day is named for the Secchi Disk, a black and white device lowered into the water to measure clarity. Beaver Water District thanks its many partners throughout the years. Their continued support and service is greatly appreciated.
