August 2012 Lake Clarity

05/30/2013

Confirming casual observations in the summer of 2012 on how clear the lake was (the big lake, that is), Ed Hetzel provided the results of his annual August secchi disk readings.  As you can see, 2012 was a tremendous improvement with visibility of 3 meters (over 9 ft).

No guarantees for 2013, of course, but the history shows that a constant source of nitrogen and phosphorus would not cause such wide variances.
