Technological Responses

This chapter examines "technical" conservation/remediation interventions that help protect a lake's values and does not discuss development interventions such as fish pens and hydropower dams.The technological responses described here can be broadly divided into two groups: watershed-based measures (which include point and nonpoint measures) and in-lake measures (which include biological, chemical and physical measures).

Which types of technological responses have been inplemented in your lake basin?

Which ones are currently being planned?

Who decides which ones will be used? What are the criteria used?
