Eutrophication and sedimentation are closely related, and when accelerated, commonly result in one or more of the following familiar lake problems: (1)algae blooms, with attendant odor problems; (2)nuisance rooted aquatic plant growth; (3) sediment infilling, diminished usable water surface, and related water-quality problems; and (4)declining fisheries and fishkills, attributable to dissolved oxygen depletion.
