Summary

The ecological status of lake Pyhäjärvi, located in south-western Finland, may be classified as moderate due to its elevated nutrient concentrations and algal biomass production. Thus, the Yläneenjoki river basin, accounting for >50% of the total phosphorus loading to the lake, was chosen as the Finnish test catchment in the Benchmark models for the Water Framework Directive project. One aim of the project was to test the suitability of models like the catchment scale model SWAT for the assessment of nutrient and sediment transport and management options needed to meet the surface water quality requirements.
