Conclusion

External measure most effective for oligotrophication:



In Schlachtensee external load below critical external load


In Lake Tegel external load mainly still above


Internal measures have been at most supportive:



In Schlachtensee hypolimnion withdrawal only in first 2 years


In Lake Tegel aeration probably without effect on P retention

WHY ?

Requirements for Impact on P
-
Retention

For Aeration:



Aerobic sorption capacity sufficient (Fe/P>12, Jensen et al. 1992)


Sediment oxygen demand < Additionall oxygen supply


H
2
S
-
Konzentration low

For Hypolimnetic Withdrawal:



Hypolimnion size and P accumulation in hypolimnion


P transformation by mineralisation and desorption high


Water retention time 2
-

5 yr good
