dc.description.abstractLake Sidney Lanier, located in northeastern Georgia, is a large reservoir in a watershed that is agricultural with urban and considerable suburban residential areas. Lake Lanier provides the drinking water for 60 percent of the population of Georgia and is also heavily used for recreation. Recreation, increasing urban and suburban development, and continued agriculture have resulted in siltation, sewage loading from treatment plants and septic tanks, and non-point source pollution. However, many of the effects that normally occur in heavily developed lakes, such as decreased transparency and blue-green algal blooms, have not been extensively noted in Lake Lanier. Data from a water quality monitoring program begun in 1987 are reported here and compared to data collected in 1978 and 1979 in order to evaluate the trophic status of Lake Lanier over the last 12 years.en_US
