  • Strategies for Managing the Lakes of the Rotorua District, New Zealand

    The Rotorua district in New Zealand contains 12 nationally important lakes. Environment Bay of Plenty (EBOP), which has the responsibility of managing the quality of these lakes, set a routine monitoring program for these lakes and adopted the method of Burns et al. (1999, 2000) to analyse the data and calculate a numeric Trophic Level Index (TLI) value for each. In 1994, the district community ...

  • Monitoring, environmental emergencies management and water treatment improvement of freshwater lakes in China: the Chao Lake case study

    Severe eutrophication of freshwater lakes, with the subsequent risk of algal blooms, has a critical effect on the safety of drinking water supplies in China and is one of the main environmental emergencies in the country. This paper focuses on Chao Lake, a large, shallow eutrophic lake used as a source of drinking water. The study considers the possibilities of improving the lake monitoring ...

  • Water-level regulation for freshwater management of Bosten Lake in Xinjiang, China

    The Bosten Lake is the largest inland freshwater lake of China, in which water level and salinity fluctuate due to the imbalance between inflows and outflows under climate change and anthropogenic activities. This paper employed system dynamics as an effective methodology to grasp the regulation rules for sustainable freshwater management of the Bosten Lake. Results show the following. (1) ...

  • July is Lake & Reservoir Awareness Month!

    Lakes and reservoirs cover over 40 million acres of the United States. Lakes and reservoirs also play other vital and often hidden, roles. They provide drinking water and irrigation water for agricultural fields and many times a source of electricity and power generation. They also serve an important function of absorbing rainfall and runoff from land, help to prevent floods, and provide ...

  • Development of water scenarios for large lakes in Europe: the case of Lake Peipsi

    Qualitative or quantitative description of the future by developing scenarios is a key method when taking a long-term view, e.g., up to 2050. Previously the time frames covered by the scenarios have usually been no more than 20 years. This period can be too short for achieving long-term goals when, for example, testing watershed management plans. This paper is an attempt to introduce and ...

  • Managing Great Lakes Water Levels Adaptively in Response to Changing Climate Conditions

    The Laurentian Great Lakes contain an abundance of fresh water, collectively representing approximately 20% of the fresh surface water available globally. Despite the enormity of this resource, water levels and flows in the Great Lakes are subject to fluctuations caused by changing climate conditions that have cascading impacts on the coastal ecosystem and the regional economy. Proactive ...

  • Multiscale Drivers of Water Chemistry of Boreal Lakes and Streams

    Abstract The variability in surface water chemistry within and between aquatic ecosystems is regulated by many factors operating at several spatial and temporal scales. The importance of geographic, regional-, and localscale factors as drivers of the natural variability of three water chemistry variables representing buffering capacity and the importance of weathering (acid neutralizing ...


  • Lake Water Quality Model with Focus on Cyanobacteria

    ABSTRACTThe cause of cyanobacteria’s growth and dominance in certain eutrophic lakes is explored via a water quality model application. The one-dimensional lake water quality model includes nitrogen, phosphorus, silica, three phytoplankton groups and zooplankton. Lake Washington was used as the case study due to its unique history of eutrophication during a large wastewater nutrient loading ...

  • Widespread Plastic Pollution Found in Great Lakes Tributaries

    Tiny pieces of harmful plastic, called microplastics, are prevalent in many rivers that flow into the Great Lakes, according to a study published today in the journal Environmental Science & Technology. Results are also illustrated on a new USGS microplastics website. Microplastics ...

  • Prediction of lake eutrophication using artificial neural networks

    An artificial neural network (ANN), which is a data–driven modelling approach, is proposed to indicate the water quality of Lake Fuxian, the deepest lake of southwest China. To determine the nonlinear relationships between the water quality factors and eutrophication indicators, several ANN models were chosen. The back–propagation and radial basis function neural network models were applied to ...

  • Levels and distribution of tetrabromobisphenol a and hexabromocyclododecane in Taihu Lake, China

    The occurrence and distribution characteristics of tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA) and hexabromocyclododecane (HBCD) in water and sediments from Taihu Lake, China were investigated. The analytes were quantified by reversed‐phase liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry. TBBPA levels in water ranged from below the limit of detection (LOD) to 1.12 ng/L, whereas ...

  • Case study - Crystal lake wastewater treatment plant

    Challenge: The City of Crystal Lake is located about 45 miles northwest of Chicago with a population of nearly 45,000 people. Like many wastewater treatment plants, urban sprawl and suburban development puts the Crystal Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant near a host of commercial and residential neighbors, including a high school immediately west of the plant. Plant managers were very ...
