Abstract/Contents:"Water quality in eutrophic Lake Tohopekaliga, Florida, improved markedly from 1982 to 1992 as a result of reductions in phosphorus and nitrogen loading to the lake. Annual budgets of water, chloride, phosphorus and nitrogen were constructed for the lake, and indicate it is a sink for phosphorus and a source for nitrogen. Water column concentrations of total phosphorus, soluble reactive phosphorus, total nitrogen, dissolved inorganic nitrogen, and chlorophyllα all declined as external inputs of nutrients decreased. Water column nitrogen:phosphorus ratios have increased, suggesting a probable shift from nitrogen- to phosphorus-limitation. This apparent shift in nutrient limitation status also is supported by comparisions of the mean Trophic State Indices for phosphorus, nitrogen, and chlorophyll α. These improvements in water quality are attributed to the diversion of wastewater treatment plant effluent from the lake, and the increased use of wet retention ponds for stormwater runoff."

Note:The first sentence on pg. 544 should be changed to read: Despite water quality improvements, Lake Tohopekaliga remains hypereutrophic, (>0.1 mg P L⁻¹; cf. Forsberg and Ryding, 1980), because concentrations of TP at times still exceed 0.1 mg L⁻¹. Water Resource Bulletin, Vol. 31, NO. 1
