Water quality and surface plankton in Lake Jacomo, the primary recreational water for Kansas City, Missouri, were studied synoptically from June 1970 through May 1971. The lake, which has 2 million visitors per year, has been culturally eutrophicated by nutrient-rich runoff from watershed land containing farms, feedlots, and urban areas. Nuisance blooms are promoted by its dissected shoreline and relatively small size. Recommendations are presented for improving the situation. (Author)
