A water quality appraisal including trophic condition identification, lake profiling, and summarization of volunteer water clarity data. 3. Groundwater flow analysis including flow volume and direction 4. Conduct watershed appraisal to include defining watershed, land use/cover types, and identification of nutrient loads via export coefficients. 5. Conduct a property owners survey Note: the funding of sediment coring and analysis as indicated in the original project proposal is being denied. This aspect is not clearly defined and the applicability of core data to management decisions is questioned. This scope is intended as a summary only.
