O2 – Good for Lake Quality
Not just oxygen (O2), but dissolved oxygen (DO) is necessary for good water quality. The concentrations of such oxygen in unpolluted fresh waters can vary greatly and is influenced by temperature, atmospheric pressure, and salinity. Dissolved oxygen is essential for gilled fish and insects, and influences many biological and chemical processes in lakes and streams.

Sufficient dissolved oxygen in the water makes life possible for fish, insects, snails, crayfish, frogs, and various other aquatic organisms. The presence of oxygen allows other important chemical reactions to occur in water as well. For example, a well oxygenated lakes dissolved phosphorus and iron combine. This chemical process removes phosphorus from the water.

Harmful Algae Blooms Keep Water Sports on Hold at Lakes in NJ, NY and PA - Lakes in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey are beginning to deal with harmful algae blooms due to the heavy rainfall followed by high temperatures. The heavy rain washed phosphorus into the waters, providing an abundance of food for the algae to feed on.
