Originally listed on the 303(d) Impaired Waters List for nutrient impairments, the Crystal, Keller, and Lee Lakes Nutrient Impairment Total Maximum Daily Load Report and Earley Lake Water Quality Assessment (TMDL Report) (Barr, 2010) established Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for Crystal, Keller, and Lee Lakes to achieve the eutrophication standards established by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). Because Earley Lake is currently meeting the MPCA eutrophication standards, it is in the process of being removed from the 303(d) Impaired Waters List, and a TMDL was not established for the lake. Table EX-1 summarizes the existing conditions total phosphorus loads, the annual TMDL load capacity as well as the required load reduction for Crystal, Keller, and Lee Lakes.
