Re(1): New to VB. Why is lake water brown IP: 220.127.116.11 Posted on October 6, 2014 at 07:44:27 AM by David Rosenthal
The water here is high in organic matter, which tends to make the water more colored than in CT. We also have no bedrock like there is up north, so all of our lakes, which are all manmade in this area (except Lake Drummond), are either holes in the ground or dammed-up tributaries. And Lake Drummond is probably one of the more colored waterbodies due to natural conditions. I have records from the late 1800s that comment on the color of the lake, making it undesirable as a drinking water source.
Nothing wrong with the water, the fish still like it Replies:
