Spring 2024 Update

Report Findings

After extensive research, Hutchinson Environmental found that the algal blooms in Lake Eugenia appear to be caused by an excessive phosphorus load in the deeper areas of the lake. This is a result of over a century's worth of phosphorus accumulation in the lake's sediment,  that has been intensified from the increase in warmer temperatures and shorter ice seasons.

The good news is, is there is an effective, safe solution that is available to us to help reduce the algal blooms in Lake Eugenia. The report outlines a two-part remediation plan: watershed management (including septic inspection and drainage control) to prevent future phosphorus loading, and alum treatment to immediately bind and neutralize existing phosphorus in the sediment.

Thank you!

We'd like to thank all of our donors, volunteers and stakeholders that have made this study possible. Without all of your support, none of this would have been possible and your contribution to Friends of Lake Eugenia has made a direct, positive impact on the place we call home.


Our goal has always been to preserve our Lake's health and we will continue to do what we can to support any remediation activities going forward. 

Together, we can ensure the lake remains a beautiful, healthy environment for all to enjoy!
