WSBT 22 Fact Finder: Invading the Water
KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — After years of study, students at the Winona Lake school have discovered that more blue-green algae are living in Lake Wawasee.
Nestled in Kosciusko County, it is one of a dozen lakes the college’s Center for Lakes and Streams began studying extensively nearly six years ago.
Finding more blue-green algae prompted the Center to develop a new research question of what causes some blue-green algae to be toxic, and some not.
Every week, students sample water from Lake Wawasee using various techniques. Wawasee, the state’s largest natural lake, is one of several lakes and streams in Kosciusko County that the Center studies.
