The study shows that a large amount of nutritive and pollutional material is being added to the lakes from various sources. It further shows that the inorganic nitrogen contributed from these sources and from deposits on the lake bottom is a critical substance with relation to lake blooming. While the Madison sewage effluent contributes by far the largest amount of this substance to Lake Waubesa, 76.9%, it is not the sole contributor. Lake Kegonsa receives 67.2% of its inorganic nitrogen and 88.6% of its organic nitrogen from Lake Waubesa. In the case of Lake Monona the storm and industrial sewers of Madison are large contributors.
