Our shoreline algal (cladophora) survey of Torch Lake identified thirty - seven lake shore homes where we determined that lake shore septic systems were likely leaching and stimulating algae growth. This is approximately 3% of the total lake shore homes. We consider about ten of the thirty - seven identified problems serious enough to warrant possible septic system upgrading.
