In 1966 and 1980 nuisance algal blooms occurred in Fuller Lake, which is located in the District of North Cowichan, B.C. The bloom conditions appear to be the consequence of elevated lake phosporus concentrations. Phosphorus appears to come primarily from non-point sources around the lake. The contributions from residential, commercial, recreational and natural non-point sources are detailed. Results indicate that most of the phosphorus entering the lake originates from human activity.
