Comments: Curlyleaf pondweed was dying off, however, leafy pondweed was not yet showing signs of Sonar damage. Filamentous algae covered 50% of the surface in the southwest beach. After motoring over it, the algae was submerged and occupied less than 10% of the surface. Two FasTEST samples were taken, sample A from the north (outlet), Sample B from the southern end. The aeration system filter and four stones on each of the 3 diffusers were replaced, and the diffusers were repositioned in a straight line along the south rope.
