A new atlas published by the Kansas Biological Survey provides information about the health of nearly 80 lakes and reservoirs around the state.

The 240-page document compiles data and observations by the survey staff over more than a decade. It includes information about the condition of the lakes, how quickly they may be filling with sediment, and issues with aquatic nuisances and algae blooms.

Kansas Biological Survey director Ed Martinko says in statement that scientists thought it was important to make such information available to policymakers, water resource managers and the public.

The Biological Survey is a unit of the University of Kansas, which says “The Atlas of Kansas Lakes” is the first comprehensive overview of the state’s reservoirs.
