Spanaway Lake has experienced seasonal algal blooms for a number of years, and research has found that the cause is phosphorus in the lake’s groundwater inflow (Lindaur, 2018). This research focuses on sampling and analyzing that groundwater in preparation for treating it as a way of mitigating these algal blooms. The data collected documents the parameters and chemical makeup of the lake’s water column and groundwater inflow.
