  • 5-Year Average Trophic State: 42/Mesotrophic (Source: Wisconsin DNR)
  • Secchi Disk: No current Secchi disk data available. Volunteers are the source of the majority of Wisconsin’s lake water quality data, and their dedication is greatly appreciated. Would you like to volunteer to provide Secchi disk data for this lake? Please contact MCLA.
  • Chemistry (2016): The average summer Chlorophyll was 4.4.8 µg/l (compared to a Southeast Georegion summer average of 23.5 µg/l). The summer total Phosphorus average was 49 µg/l. Lakes that have more than 20 µg/l and impoundments that have more than 30 µg/l of total phosphorus may experience noticeable algae blooms.
  • Trophic State Index (TSI) (2016): 46/Mesotrophic. What does this mean?
    Mesotrophic lakes contain moderate amounts of nutrients, and contain healthy, diverse populations of aquatic plants, algae, and fish. Occasional algae blooms may occur. If the lake is deep enough to stratify, the hypolimnion often becomes low in oxygen by the end of summer, and may result in some phosphorus release from the sediments. Mesotrophic lakes are characterized by moderately clear water, but have a increasing chance of low dissolved oxygen in deep water during the summer.
