Summary

Three eutrophication models (mass balance, BATHUB, and Jensen models) were developed and calibrated for the Winnebago Pools, Wisconsin. These models were used to quantify the input of phosphorus from the sediments of the lakes, and determine how the water quality (total phosphorus concentration, chlorophyll a concentrations, and Secchi depth) should respond to changes in phosphorus loading from the watershed. Each of the models were developed using flow and phosphorus inputs from internal and external sources. This data release is subdivided into 4 parts: 1) Lake Winnebago water-quality data; 2) Mass balance of water and phosphorus for Lake Winnebago, with estimated internal loading of phosphorus estimates; 3) BATHTUB model inputs [...]

Purpose

The models were created to determine how much phosphorus input from the watershed to the Winnebago Pool Lakes has to be reduced in order for phosphorus concentrations in all four of the Pool Lakes to decline to concentrations below the 0.04 mg/L Wisconsin phosphorus criterion established for the lakes.
