"News" piece on China Lake, which went from being one of the clearest and health
"News" piece on China Lake, which went from being one of the clearest and healthiest water bodies in the state to one of the most problematic in a very short time. Measures of pH, phosphorus, chlorophyll and other indicators changed dramatically over the course of a couple years, and the lake developed massive summer algae blooms. China resident Al Althenn blames a 1984 Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) order maintaining the average depth of the lake at about a foot above the record spring high-water mark all year long. But the DEP says there's no data supporting Althenn's claim.
