Determine Pollutants or Impairments
Monitor or Propose 303(d) Listing
Lake Arbutus was last monitored in 2005 at which time the average phosphorus concentration was 124ug/L and the average Chlorophyll a concentration was 49ug/L. Recent complaints by lake users indicate algal blooms are common and interfering with designated uses of this lake. There are currently no CLMN volunteers associated with Lake Arbutus able to conduct chemistry monitoring. This project would fund a second year of sampling by WDNR to verify, per Wisconsin Consolidated Assessment and Listing Methodology (WisCALM) guidance, whether 303(d) listing is appropriate for this lake.
