    Lake Pleasant Water Quality - Please click on the link to read full article

    LAKE ECOLOGY REPORT SPRING 2017—Peter Tobiessen

    Last summer we completed our third annual
    water quality testing of Lake Pleasant through the
    DEC Citizens’ Statewide Lake Assessment Program
    (CSLAP).

    The data show that LP is a healthy lake, with
    low levels of nutrients that produce harmful algae,
    good water clarity, neutral acidity, and no other red
    flags we should be concerned with. The report
    states that, “Lake Pleasant has higher water clarity
    and lower nutrient and algal levels than typical east-
    ern Adk lakes.” I will put the full report on our web
    site if you want to know more about the program and
    LP water quality
