Rates at which natural bodies of water undergo eutrophication, as indicated by plant production, may be decreased by limiting the concentration of some critical nutrient or nutrients in the water. Following the identification of nutrient sources, limitation of their contribution to a lake or impoundment may be achieved by diversion or by treatment to remove the fertilizing materials. When sources cannot be controlled, dilutions may be used to lower concentrations below critical levels provided that an abundant supply of nutrient-poor dilution water is available. Examples are cited where diversion and dilution are being used in attempts to rehabilitate eutrophic lakes.
