Bill this bloom happened over a month before the shoreline clean out. I am almost positive it was from moving the diffusers into the deepest water in the last week of June. Never had them there before and never had a bloom like this before. The diffusers have been back in shallow water now for almost 3 weeks for winter. Hopefully the bloom is over for now.

EDIT: Thinking about this a little more. After the shoreline cleanout on August 10-14th, the whole lake looked like chocolate milk. Everyone was surprised that one, we didn't kill all the trout and two, how fast it cleared up. Maybe the milky water has something to do with the lower than 2015 DO as well?
