Diagnostic/Feasibility Study for Lake Restoration, Van Cortlandt Lake, Van Cortlandt Park, Borough of Bronx, New York.


PB90196346

Publication Date 1985
Page Count 496
Abstract Diagnosed Van Cortlandt Lake in Bronx, New York, to be hypereutrophic. It is high in nutrients, has very extensive aquatic macrophytes, sedimentation from erosion, oxygen depletion, algal blooms (green algae and some blue-green algae), and unpleasant odors. Recommended watershed management to reduce external phosphorus loading, including stormwater management (diverting highway runoff), removing debris, expanding detention basins, erosion control, dredging and channeling brook, dredging parts of lake. Urban runoff and stormwater runoff need to be controlled. The report was prepared in partial fulfillment of an EPA Clean Lakes Program grant.
