This report summarises the findings of a study that was carried out to assess environmental change over the last 200 years in Llyn Padarn. The lake is designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) for several reasons including its populations of Arctic charr and floating water-plantain. However, there have been growing concerns about the water quality of Llyn Padarn in recent years owing to a decline in the adult charr population and occurrence of the blue-green algal bloom in 2009. Enrichment of the lake is a particular concern as the lake receives effluent from the Llanberis sewage treatment works (STW). In the light of the high conservation interest of Llyn Padarn, an understanding of recent environmental change is required
