Accelerated soil erosion, resulting from such activities as the overuse or misuse of arable land, mining and/or deforestation in a drainage basin, can lead to the excessive loading of suspended solids (sediment) to lakes. The consequences of these increased loads include the rapid accumulation of sediment within the lake basin, and the increased turbidity (decreased transparency) of the water in the lake. The immediate impacts can be a significant reduction in the number of living organisms in a lake, decreased biodiversity, and reduced fisheries.
