Oligotrophic Lake Homes in Belknap County

"OLIGO – Oligotrophic lakes are usually contain a low level of nutrients and as a result do not support nuisance algal blooms or extensive rooted plant growths. Aesthetically, these lakes are the best of the three ratings and include most of the larger, deeper lakes. From a technical standpoint a Oligotrophic lake is actually considered a "younger lake" because time has not taken a toll on its clean state by filling up with sediment. Now all lakes in NH were pretty much the same age however many factors will age a lake including the depth, water floor, sand and human activity. 

Here are homes listed on Oligotrophic Lakes. 

 

OTHER LAKE CLASSIFICATIONS

MESO – Mesotrophic is intermediate between an oligotrophic and eutrophic water body. Most lakes in NH are in this class. It does not in any way mean it isn't clean. You may find it to be more tea colored which has more to do with iron in the water which is found in Granite--afterall we are in the Granite State. Algal production is moderate. Phosphorus input and water clarity are also intermediate compared to the other two lake ratings. Fish love these lakes for sure. If the lake is abused it eventually may move into the eutrophic category 

"EUTRO – Eutrophic lakes are characterized by a higher levels of algae or "weeds" or aquatic plants, which indicates that the system may be receiving an overabundance of phosphorus. Water clarity is usually dramatically reduced during algal blooms. These bodies of water tend to be weedier, shallower with mucky bottoms.
