Chilika Lake Tourism Pressure While tourism provides economic benefits to local communities surrounding Chilika Lake, tourist activities can have several negative impacts on the environment including air pollution, trash, noise and wildlife disturbances.   diagram,chilika,lake,tourism,noise,pollution,trash,income,village,growth,wildlife,disturbances

Chilika Lake Pollution Pressure As land use in the Chilika Lake area changes from forest to settlements and paddy agriculture sewage, and fertilizer and pesticides runoff increases into the Lake. This extra nutrient input results in algae blooms that float and sit on the bottom.  diagram,pollution,chilika,lake,runoff,pressure,agriculture,algae,blooms,sewage,pesticides,extra,nutrient,input

Chilika Lake Sedimentation During monsoon season excess sediment is deposited in Chilika Lake, mostly from Mahanadi River tributaries, nearby settlements, and agricultural lands. As the Lake becomes more shallow and its sea outlets fill in with sediment, increased flooding occurs.      diagram,sediment,flooding,excess,monsoon,chilika,lake,sedimentation,shallow

Chilika Lake Fishing and Aquaculture Pressures Unsustainable fishing and aquaculture practices have put pressure on the Chilika Lake ecosystem. Dead fish thrown back into the water contaminate the lake while shrimp pens trap sediment and kill juvenile fish.   diagram,fishing,aquaculture,pressures,overfishing,water,contamination,pressures,chilika,lake

Floating Wetlands Structure and Impact Emergent wetland species are planted in a buoyant matrix that floats at the water surface. The roots of these plants grow through the matrix and take up the nutrients they need to grow directly from the water, potentially decreasing nutrient concentrations.   diagram,floating,wetlands,water,quality,plants,chesapeake,bay,watershed,stormwater,nutrients

Coastal Wetlands Resilience to Climate Change Comparison Coastal wetlands that are protected from erosion have an adequate sediment supply to build upwards, and will likely be more resilient to the effects of climate change.

Multiple Benefits of Rain Gardens Gutters and downspouts installed onto buildings direct rainwater from roofs to rain gardens. Plants with deep root systems encourage stormwater infiltration and absorbs excess nutrient runoff.

Light and Dark Conditions Impact on Submerged Aquatic Vegetation Growth Excess nutrients will result in increased chlorophyll and turbidity, limiting the amount of light that reaches benthic sediment. Light is essential for healthy submerged aquatic vegetation growth. Diagram from "New Insights" (p.30)- http://ian.umces.edu/pdfs/ian_report_438.pdf

Counteracting Factors Impacting Best Management Practice Implementation  Improvements in water quality can be counteracted by changes in nutrient sources and land-use practices. Increased nutrient loads from stormwater and intensified agriculture often overwhelm the positive effects of best management practices. diagram,counteracting,factors,best,management,practices,water,quality,improvement,challenges

Pervious Surfaces Used to Promote Stormwater Infiltration and Retention  Pervious surfaces, such as modular paver blocks, allow the soil to retain stormwater.  Impervious surfaces prevent the infiltration of stormwater, increasing the volume and velocity of surface runoff.     diagram,pervious,impervious,surfaces,stormwater,infiltration,pavement,pavers,drains
