4.9 ALTERNATE MANAGEMENT OPPORTUNITIES
INTRODUCTION
Additional management opportunities exist in methods oriented towards nutrient management or
chemical remediation. These techniques often utilize a more biologically oriented approach than
traditional "engineering" approaches previously described. A partial list of these techniques is provided
in table 4.9.1. These methods are discussed in more detail in Cooke and Kennedy (1989). Excerpts
from Cooke and Kennedy (1989) are included as Appendix 4.9A.

Algicide application
Control algae
4.9.1 NUTRIENT MANAGEMENT
Nutrient management can be accomplished by management of external sources (inflows,
groundwater, surface runoff) and internal sources (mobilization from sediments and plants). External
sources are best managed in the watershed at point and nonpoint sources as discussed previously.
Often watershed management is not readily available and alternate techniques such as dilution, flushing,
and diversion are used. Dilution and flushing is a function of water management and may be
accomplished in multi reservoir systems if project operations include some latitude in applying area-
capacity curves. The concept here is to pass water with elevated nutrient concentrations from one
