Environmental Impact

Pollution, houses, industries, deforestation, fisheries, hydroelectricity can cause changes in lake.


Biological indicators can be used to define and quantify the impact

The L.A.K.E.S Institute can provide answers to the following questions:

- What is the level of pollution in my lake?
- What changes have caused the installation of industries, houses, fisheries, deforestation?
- How can we remediate these changes?

The L.A.K.E.S Institute can also help by:

- Quantifying the possible environmental impact of an industrie, damn for electricity, housing developments

The L.A.K.E.S Institute uses biological and sedimentological indicators preserved in lake sediment to provide the history of changes before and after the human activities were established.

These indicators can also be used to provide the natural state of a lake and provide an environmental assessment.


 Biological and sedimentological indicators preserved in lake sediment provide an history of pollution, agriculture, construction, herding, deforestation, fishing, changes in catchment
