Abstract:

The pollution of lakes in Japan is serious in all parts of the country. Although Lake Shibayama is a small one, or a swamp, its pollution is not treated lightly, because many people visit the hot spring spa on its shore. Pollution studies started in 1981 the work on the restoration project was actually begun in 1986. As a restoration technique, the dredging of sediment was employed. This paper describes the pollution studies and the management of dredged material activities.
