Abstract: The curtailment of nutrient, organic matter, and sediment loads to reservoirs is a direct means for improving water quality. However, the recycling of nutrients and/or the failure to sufficiently reduce loads may lead to continued problems. Therefore, in-lake water quality management techniques need to be further developed and evaluated. These include dredging, chemical or physical treatment, aeration and mixing, biological controls, and structural or operational modification.
