4 Lakes with the least consistent sampling frequency Bradley Cato Davis Magnolia Point Lonesome Tussock Van Ness

5 Total Nitrogen, 2011 Average <1 mg/L – Good conditions, low risk of water quality degradation mg/L – Fair conditions, within seasonal averages >1.5 mg/L - System may be prone to sudden reductions in water quality, algae blooms

6 Total Nitrogen, 2011 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia – No Data Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

7 Total Nitrogen, 2010 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

8 Total Phosphorus, 2011 Average <0.05 mg/L – Good conditions mg/L – Fair conditions, within seasonal averages >0.1 ug/L - System may see a rapid increase in algal growth

9 Total Phosphorus, 2011 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia – No data Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

10 Total Phosphorus, 2010 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

11 Total Chlorophyll, 2011 Average <15 ug/L – Good conditions, low incidence of algae ug/L – Fair conditions, within seasonal averages >30 ug/L - System may become low in oxygen, low in light penetration

12 Total Chlorophyll, 2011 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia – No Data Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

13 Total Chlorophyll, 2010 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

14 Trophic State Index, 2011 Average 0 – 50 – Good conditions, low risk of algae blooms – Fair conditions, water quality may be degraded System is experiencing trophic collapse, fish kills and algae blooms may occur

15 Trophic State Index, 2011 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia - No Data Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

16 Trophic State Index, 2010 Average Bellamy Bradley Cato Cooter Croft Davis Dodd Floral City Fort Cooper Hampton Henderson Hernando Little (Consuella) Little Henderson Magnolia Point Lonesome Spivey Todd Tussock Van Ness

17 Conclusions Data for all lakes was well within state standards (where applicable) Water Quality in 2011 so far is much better than in 2010 in most locations Historically, water quality increases as you move south to north. But with nutrient data it appears that the Nitrogen levels in the Inverness has been better than the Hernando Pool.
