The program will provide actual data and information vital to understanding water quality conditions across the country and how these conditions vary with geographic setting as well as human and natural influences. NARS program goals are to: • Generate scientifically valid and environmentally relevant information on the condition of lake resources • Determine national and regional ecological and recreational well-being of lakes • Establish baseline information for future trends assessment • Identify key stressors to lake health and explore the relative importance of these stressors. The NLA provides unbiased estimates of the condition of natural and manmade freshwater lakes, ponds, and reservoirs greater than 10 acres and at least one meter deep. Using a statistical survey design, lakes were selected at random to represent the condition of the larger population of lakes across the lower 48 states. A total of 1,028 lakes were sampled for the NLA during summer 2007, representing the condition of 50,000 lakes nationwide. The Great Lakes and Great Salt Lake were not included in the survey. The NLA finds that 56% of the nation’s lakes support healthy biological communities when compared to least disturbed sites in similar regions. Another 21% of lakes are in fair condition, and 22% are in poor biological condition. This rating is based on an index of phytoplankton and zooplankton taxa loss—the percentage of taxa observed compared to those that are expected, based on conditions at least disturbed lakes. The draft report has undergone State and EPA review. EPA, through this public review, is seeking comment on the information contained in the draft report, the reasonableness of the VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:41 Dec 22, 2009 Jkt 220001 conclusions, and the clarity with which the information is presented.
