Abstract
To many people a lake is a place to temporarily escape the daily work routine and enjoy the recreational pursuits of swimming, fishing and boating. In an attempt to get closer to this recreational opportunity, people build homes and cottages adjacent to lakes. Over the years lake residents begin to notice a change in water quality, but they frequently do not understand exactly how and why.
