Forest Lake Diagnostic Study
The focus of this Diagnostic Study and Implemenation Plan will be on protection efforts to maintain or improve the water quality of Forest Lake by reducing phosphorus loads to the lake, especially from storm water. The two main objectives of this project are to 1) compile and make minor updates to a large body of diagnostic work that already exists for Forest Lake, and 2) develop a comprehensive, site-specific implementation plan for Forest Lake. Implementation activities have been identified in the Forest Lake watershed as part of several independent studies. However, there exists a need to compile these implementation activities into one plan, fill any gaps in implementation activity identification, and develop a concise implementation schedule that targets projects with high phosphorus reduction cost-benefit and/or projects that can be implemented on a multi-subwatershed scale.
