Summer is the time for vacations, adventures, and relaxation. However, some family trips can be unpredictable. There is one particular family trip that comes to mind. We got up early to pack up our twenty- eight foot pontoon boat with everything we needed for the day. Summer was in full swing. We were excited to spend the day at the lake with family and friends. Today was the day we were going to try Lake Roosevelt because we heard that it is the perfect place to swim, boat and relax.

We had to hook up the water bike and tow the boat back to shore. It was like a tugboat pulling a battleship. Just as we started our journey, our luck went from bad to worse. The sky that had been picture perfect was quickly changing. The sun was now playing hide and seek in the clouds.

The waves lifted us up so high and then threw us back down, I thought for sure the boat would break into tiny pieces. With one final tug, we finally made it to the dock. However, the strength of the swell, sent us crashing into another boat. Just as we tied up, I noticed a young lady unconscious on the dock. Her friends were by her side. I shouted out "Did anyone call 911" they said that they did

Dealing with flooding has been an all too often occurrence for those who live or work around the western suburbs of Chicago. Parking lots are often underwater making them unsafe to enter and effectively shutting down the Schools and businesses in the area. Standing water is found around every corner causing roads to become barricaded off. I have personally watched cars floating down the street. Finally, the local residents and governments have had enough, they've reached a decision. One of the parks in the area will be torn down to make room for an emergency runoff pond. The chosen park is Armstrong Park, which includes the natural walking path park called Lake George. Adding the runoff pond will vastly improve the surrounding communities

Throughout the National Park we could see remains of rocks and minerals from the explosion. Crater Lake is one of the nicest and monumental lakes throughout the Pacific North West.

Since the 1960’s, Lake Erie has been recovering from its unhealthy state and it’s public status. Lake Erie was terribly polluted that lead to fires and algae which was something locals were not happy about. Lake Erie’s water even got to the point of restriction. Pollutants were being dumped and phosphorus, fertilizers and pesticides were leaking into rivers that would later lead into Lake Erie. “As a result of these pollutants, Lake Erie contained increased levels of phosphorus and nitrogen, which contributed to eutrophication - a process that encourages the development of algal blooms.” (Rotman). Lake Erie was even known as the “burning river” or even the “dead lake”.

Kennedy Lake is a 4.0 ha lake with an average depth of 2.4 meters and a maximum depth of 3.7 m located in south west Tucson. The lake is dyed green to protect from algal blooms, has minimal trees surrounding it, and a decent amount of submersed and emergent vegetation. Sunfish were stocked at the end of March and catfish were stocked the morning of sampling date (April 6, 2016). We detected rainbow trout, redear sunfish, bluegill, threadfin shad, and largemouth bass. Apparently there may also be grass carp (white amur) present to help regulate aquatic plants. Fishing pressure on sampling night seemed to be intense, with lots of people fishing. People were a mix of young and old with some families present as well.
