Investigating Temporal and Spatial Variations of Nutrient and Trace Metal Loading in Utah Lake (Utah, USA)
To elucidate the temporal and spatial trend of trace metal and nutrient concentration variations, we collected monthly water samples and quarterly floc layer sediment samples from the American Fork River, Provo River, Hobble Creek, Spanish Fork River, Jordan River, and Utah Lake to investigate the fluctuations of nutrient and trace metal concentrations at 10 sampling locations. The knowledge from this project can guide actions increasingly necessary to safeguard the services provided by the Utah Lake ecosystem amid mounting pressure on freshwater resources. The nutrient and trace metal findings will deliver vital information for pinpointing which inflows contribute the greatest contaminant loads into Utah Lake. Consequently, the data can assist state agencies in addressing critical questions in water quality, hydrologic, environmental, biogeochemical sciences, and management with respect to human–environment interactions. Moreover, our results will provide guidance on management and remediation strategies for other shallow lakes facing similar water quality challenges worldwide.
