Water quality

Our narrative on limnological science may not bear direct relationship to recreational human uses of lakes such as swimming, boating, snorkeling except perhaps in the extreme cases. It is mostly about cultural eutrophication (i.e., nutrient enrichment), and biodiversity as well as cumulative impacts of post-development stressors on freshwater biota (e.g., on key biological indicators, zoobenthos, phytobenthos, chironomid mentum deformities)
