How long does water stay in Lake George?

The retention time of a lake is the average length of time that water remains in the lake. Lake size, water source, and watershed size are primary factors in determining retention time.

The retention time for Lake George is six to eight years. This is very long. Great Sacandaga Lake, a large nearby lake, has a retention time of 0.6 years, while many other Adirondack lakes are flushed in days or weeks.

Why does retention time matter for water quality?

The water in some lakes flushes very rapidly. These short-retention-time lakes respond quickly to management practices that decrease nutrient input.

In contrast, in lakes with long water retention like Lake George, nutrients accumulate and are recycled annually with turnover.  In these lakes, the response to management practices that decrease nutrient input is delayed.

Dilution/flushing has been documented as an effective restoration technique to restore eutrophic Moses and Green Lakes in Washington State. The dilution water added to both lakes was low in nitrogen and phosphorus content relative to the lake or normal input water. Consequently, lake nutrient content dropped predictably. Dilution or flushing rates were about ten times normal during the spring‐summer periods in Moses Lake and three times normal on an annual basis in Green Lake. Improvement in quality (nutrients, algae, and transparency) was on the order of 50 percent in Moses Lake and even greater in Green Lake. The facilities for supplying dilution water were largely in place for the cited lakes; thus, costs for water transport were minimal. Available facilities, and therefore, costs, for water transport would usually vary greatly, however. Achieving maximum benefit from the technique may be more limited by availability of low nutrient water rather than facilities costs. Quality improvement may occur from physical effects of algal cell washout and water column instability if only high nutrient water is available.
