Technological Responses

This chapter examines "technical" conservation/remediation interventions that help protect a lake's values and does not discuss development interventions such as fish pens and hydropower dams. The technological responses described here can be broadly divided into two groups: watershed-based measures (which include point and nonpoint measures) and in-lake measures (which include biological, chemical and physical measures).
