This model could be refined for the TCMA lakes, and would aid local agencies and the community immensely when determining the recreational and ecological habitat qualities of lakes.
In 2002, Les Ruse used pupal exuviae to characterize the distribution of chironomids in lakes of the United Kingdom and found alkalinity and lake volume to be the most predictable measures of species communities.
The lakes in the TCMA span a gradient of mesotrophic to hypereutrophic, and I have chosen four mesotrophic lakes, eight eutrophic lakes and four hypereutrophic lakes for a total of 16 lakes (see Table below).

A data set of 49 sediment cores from 41 lakes in the United Kingdom and Ireland was used to investigate how the variability of anthropogenic Pb concentration and accumulation rate affects using lake sediments to reconstruct Pb contamination of the atmosphere at the regional scale.
The anthropogenic Pb concentration, when averaged over six to eleven lakes in subregions, was sufficient to isolate the trend in Pb contamination of the atmosphere since 1850 from lake-specific influences.
A model that relates anthropogenic Pb concentration in lake sediment to Pb flux from the atmosphere was developed and used to reconstruct Pb flux from the atmosphere in three subregions; the reconstructed flux varies from 2.7 ± 0.9 to 18.9 ± 5.2 mgPb m
