The process of eutrophication of ponds is discussed. Eutrophication's natural roots and the influence humans have upon it are examined. Methods for preventing or reversing eutrophication are explored. The indications and counter-indications for human intervention are discussed. The Upper and Lower Ponds at the Worcester EcoTarium are presented as a case study. A recommendation is made to the EcoTarium staff, in order to meet their goal of reversing the eutrophication of the Upper Pond.
