The study deals with the restoration of water quality of shallow, polluted, and eutrophic lakes. Dredging and removing of lake bottom sediments and introducing better quality water are the restoration measures explored in this study. Vancouver Lake, Washington, was used as a test case. Hydrologic, hydrographic, hydrodynamic, and water quality information provided by separate but correlated studies, was combined with the aid of mathematical simulation models. Dissolved oxygen was used as an indicator of the overall water quality in the system. Photosynthesis, atmospheric reaeration, biological respiration, and advection were the mechanisms considered in the computation of diurnal changes in dissolved oxygen level. In addition to the DO model, the aquatic life model for computing time-varying levels of phytoplankton and bacteria was also tried. (Modified author abstract)
