“Rethinking the recovery of the lower Yahara Lakes”
Cory McDonald is a Research Limnologist with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. He holds a PhD in Environmental Engineering and his work focuses on surface water quality and modeling. His current research interests are non-point source nutrient pollution in the surface- and groundwater systems of Dane County, eutrophication and cyanobacteria in shallow Wisconsin lakes, and nutrient cycling in wetlands.
About the talk:
Lakes Waubesa and Kegonsa receive the majority of their phosphorus loading from upstream watersheds via the Yahara River. However, there is evidence that reducing direct phosphorus inputs (from the Waubesa/Kegonsa watersheds) may lead to greater improvements in summertime water quality in these lakes than expected.
