Lake observations: A nice warm, overcast and windy day. The winds were out of the south at 11 mph. Ducks and turtles were swimming in the sample area. Algae is starting to grow fairly quickly now. Most of the algae is under the surface of the water. Nitrites are at .15. Total nitrate is at .05. Phosphate at 5 ppm. All are at low levels. The lake level is slightly below normal. Not bad considering Dallas County continues to be in a moderate to severe drought.
