Project Overview

Hydes Lake is the headwaters to Carver Creek and is known for its excellent fishery. However, the lake has elevated nutrient levels which lead to poor water quality. A clean up plan for Hydes Lake has identified the need to reduce phosphorus loading by 81 percent from watershed sources.
The purpose of this project is to significantly reduce the phosphorus loading into Hydes Lake by installing three projects. The first project will install a bioreactor to treat 60 acres of agricultural land. The second project will identify options to treat high volumes of phosphorus laden water entering the lake from an adjacent sub-watershed. The third project will restore approximately 400 feet of sparsely vegetated shoreline. These projects are estimated to reduce phosphorus by 233 pounds per year. This is a significant amount of the annual 388 pound phosphorus reduction that is needed.
