Lake Poinsett Watershed
Strategic Plan Report, 2013

“Lake Poinsett is a lake highly developed for both recreational and commercial purposes. Excessive
algal blooms have historically plagued the lake and hampered recreational uses during the summer
months of the year. The algal blooms were caused
by excessive nutrients delivered from several
sources within the watershed.”
