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.
