There appears to have been an increasing occurrence of late winter/early spring algae blooms in Ward Lake Lake may be shifting from dominance by green algae to blue-green This year was a game changer Water Quality

19 Three Areas of Interest Stormwater (Upland) Stormwater (Upland) Bacteria (Shoreline and Lake Bed) Bacteria (Shoreline and Lake Bed) Phosphorus and Algae Blooms Phosphorus and Algae Blooms Water Quality Impacts

20 Stormwater Primary concern is stormwater from roadways and parking lots Primary concern is stormwater from roadways and parking lots All stormwater will be treated through infiltration (e.g., porous pavement and filtration strips), THE best technique for removal of pollutants All stormwater will be treated through infiltration (e.g., porous pavement and filtration strips), THE best technique for removal of pollutants

21 Stormwater No stormwater from the upland area will drain toward Ward Lake No stormwater from the upland area will drain toward Ward Lake Stormwater from the pedestrian trail will be treated and detained at predevelopment rates and be discharged toward the lake Stormwater from the pedestrian trail will be treated and detained at predevelopment rates and be discharged toward the lake

22 Based on King Countys monitoring of swimming beaches, no bacteria problems are expected Based on King Countys monitoring of swimming beaches, no bacteria problems are expectedBacteria

23 Phosphorus and Algae Blooms Phosphorus (P) is typically the key ingredient in promoting algae blooms in lakes; although not necessarily the case for toxic blooms Phosphorus (P) is typically the key ingredient in promoting algae blooms in lakes; although not necessarily the case for toxic blooms P input from the site will be controlled through better vegetation management in the upland area and through use of artificial turf at the shore P input from the site will be controlled through better vegetation management in the upland area and through use of artificial turf at the shore Less P should be exported than under typical residential development Less P should be exported than under typical residential development Infiltration and movement through the ground is very effective for P removal Infiltration and movement through the ground is very effective for P removal The park is not expected to result in increased P or lead to more or extended algae blooms The park is not expected to result in increased P or lead to more or extended algae blooms
