This study was initiated in 1982 in the Three Lakes area in Antrim County, Michigan. The purpose of the study was to determine the water quality status of Lake Bellaire and to investigate the factors which will affect the recreational and aesthetic uses of the system in the future. Lake Bellaire has received special emphasis for this study. It is shallow, has moderate nutrient levels, and receives drainage from upstream shallow lakes and areas surrounding the Bellaire Sewage Treatment Plant. On the other hand, Torch Lake is a large and relatively deep lake which has excellent water quality and is several times the volume of Lake Bellaire.
