If you are planning to test the water from the 6400 acre lake, what do you hope to accomplish by testing the various parameters? IMO the acreage is too large to chemically amend or change the current water chemistry if some values are not optimum. What ever the results you will have to 'live' with the results good or bad. Not much water chemistry management is possible on a lake that size. Watershed management would be about the only adjustments that could be made if the lake is considered too eutrophic - productive that result in nuisance algae blooms.
