Webinar: Understanding and Managing Internal Phosphorus Loading in Lakes
September 30 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am CDT
Phosphorus (P) loading from the watershed is a problem for many lakes, but not just during the year it enters. Long-term inputs accumulate in the sediments under lakes and can be recycled by multiple processes. These legacy P loads can be the dominant source during summer and are linked to the increasing frequency and severity of cyanobacteria blooms. Control of internal loading is a matter of removing the sediment or keeping the P in it from being released, with several options available. This webinar will explore internal P loading, its link to cyanobacteria blooms, and methods to reduce internal P loading.
