Nutrients and sediments washed into the lake from various human activities have since made the lake eutrophic (overly nutrient-rich), so that weeds are abundant and periodic algae blooms occur.
Wetlands that once covered extensive areas around the lake have been filled in, drained, or were flooded when the lake level was raised with the 1849 construction of a dam at present-day Tenney Park.
This low, flat area is lacustrine plain, the ancient lake bed of glacial Lake Yahara, which formed when glacial debris and ice blocked the Yahara River, raising water levels and flooding an area much larger than that covered by Lake Mendota today.
