J.

Nest Lake was 20 ppb and 28 ppb.   Calhoun Lake showed 26 ppb and 33 ppb.   Monongalia Lake had recordings of 33 ppb and 49 ppb.   At the time, they are checking 10 inlets located on Green Lake for phosphorus readings.   On Green Lake the readings are lower for 2006 than 2005, but the reading of Monongalia Lake of 49 ppb on 06.13.06 is troublesome.
