  • Chemistry:
    Average summer Chlorophyll 4 µg/l. (SE Georegion average 20.9 µg/l).
    Average summer Total Phosphorus 24.4 µg/l.
    May experience noticeable algae blooms.
  • Trophic State Index (TSI): 45/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 an increasing chance of low dissolved oxygen in deep water during the summer.
