A common theme is found among Limnotek projects. We listen to client needs and assist with the development of a specific set of questions that helps to focus the project. Data are then acquired  to address the questions either through monitoring or experiments in the field or by mining existing data or modeling. These data are carefully selected so that the questions can be answered using statistical and modeling tools that supports rigorous review. In some cases this cycle may be repeated to develop advanced water quality criteria or to examine trends over time

In restoration projects, the same kind of process occurs. Treatments are selected. They are tested with monitoring activities from which outcomes are used to adjust or maintain a treatment strategy.
