Benton Lake Excess Nutrients TMDL Report

Document
Description
This Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study addresses a nutrient impairment for Benton Lake in the Carver Creek watershed. The goal of this TMDL is to quantify the pollutant reductions needed to meet State water quality standards. Water quality in Benton Lake is considered poor with frequent algal blooms. Significant sources of phosphorus appear to be from both internal loading and runoff from the landscape. Also contributing to phosphorus loading is Meuwissen Lake, which flows directly into Benton Lake.
