Watersheds, recreational uses, and miscellaneous


Note: Lakes in capitals imply availability of bathymetric maps.   
Any potential restoration: Emphasis should be on restoring lakes to their pre-cultural (i.e., modelled hindcast) phosphorus concentrations in order to minimize any negative impacts from undue cultural eutrophication. The models have not been calibrated for  highly coloured lakes (DOC > 10 mg/l) due to humic and fulvic acids. Such lakes may have relatively high background phosphorus concentrations. In many cases though, it may be uneconomic/impractical to achieve such restoration.
