Cooling water temperatures signal fall turnover

Email News Alerts

We are coming up on an important transition time for our area lakes. We are approaching "fall turnover". The turnover time is when the mass of the lakes mixes and the water on the bottom of the lake actually comes to the surface and all water in the lake mixes. We can know the lake has turned over, as the water will actually smell foul, like rotten eggs, for a day or two. The water will be very cloudy for a few days before becoming clear.
