Grover Scott Jeane has written: 'Eutrophication study of Lake Geneva, King County'. The Lake Washington case study is an example of creative interaction between the scientific community and the political arena in the develop- ment and execution of a plan that resulted in striking and rapid improve- ment of the quality of the waters of this lake, which was being increasingly influenced by growth of the metropolitan Seattle area. Limnology (/ l ɪ m ˈ n ɒ l ə dʒ i / lim-NOL-ə-jee; from Greek λίμνη, limne, "lake" and λόγος, logos, "knowledge"), is the study of inland aquatic ecosystems. The study of limnology includes aspects of the biological, chemical, physical, and geological characteristics and functions of inland waters (running and standing waters, fresh and saline, natural and man-made).

Okauchee Lake in Waukesha County is an example of a lake in this study type with long-term data. This lake has been monitored for water quality since (Wisconsin District Lake Studies Team, ). About lakes throughout the State have been monitored at this level by the USGS since mid Florida Atlas of Lakes. The Florida Atlas of Lakes was created in by the University of South Florida Water Atlas program, with funding and support from the Florida Lake Management Society and Florida Florida Atlas of Lakes database contains water quality and hydrology data collected by Florida LAKEWATCH volunteers and Water Atlas program sponsors. To understand eutrophication in a given setting, one is inevitably forced to consider physical, chemical, and biological phenomena together. Thus while eutrophication is the focus of our study of Lake Dillon, we have assumed that a broad base of lirnnological information is a prerequisite foundation.   A study in Iowa found that, ceteris paribus, higher concentrations of cyanobacteria in a lake would decrease the likelihood of visitation (Egan et al., ). A recent survey of Ohio anglers found that 96% of respondents were aware of HABs and that half of the respondents had in some way altered their behavior in response to such blooms.

As human populations increase and land-use intensifies, toxic and unsightly nuisance blooms of algae are becoming larger and more frequent in freshwater lakes. In most cases, the blooms are predominantly blue-green algae (Cyanobacteria), which are favored by low ratios of nitrogen to phosphorus. In the past half century, aquatic scientists have devoted much effort to understanding the causes.   Through a combination of efforts by volunteer lake monitors and King County staff, data relating to physical, chemical, and biological aspects of the lake have been collected for most lakes. The King County Lake Stewardship Program analyzes data to track long-term water quality trends in small lakes in western King County.

When algal blooms decay, the bacteria that decays it depletes the oxygen in the lake or pond and the fish die of.
