Effectiveness Monitoring for Total Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Loads in Fenwick and Sawyer Lakes
Effectiveness Monitoring for Total Phosphorus Total Maximum Daily Loads in Fenwick and Sawyer Lakes (Number of pages: 15) (Publication Size: 1MB)
|Washington State Department of Ecology is required to develop and implement Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for impaired waters, and evaluate the effectiveness of the clean-up plan. This report presents an assessment of the effectiveness of total phosphorus (total P) TMDL implementation programs at Fenwick and Sawyer lakes.
Available monitoring data indicate that both lakes have periods when total P concentrations are above their target limits, especially at Lake Fenwick. Consequently, both lakes may likely continue to experience elevated total P concentrations and subsequent eutrophication. The fundamental supposition is noncompliance to the state’s narrative water quality standard for aesthetics.
