Abstract : The data presented in this report represents water quality information collected at 22 Lake Erie Basin tributary mouth sampling stations for the Lake Erie Wastewater Management Study. A list of these stations along with the U. S. Geological Survey station identification number and drainage area is provided and the approximated location of the sampling stations in relation to the Lake Erie drainage basin are indicated. Samples collected were analyzed for the following parameters: total phosphorus, amonia nitrogen, nitrite-nitrate nitrogen, chlorides, dissolved silica, suspended solids, and conductivity. Twenty percent of the samples were analyzed for total kjeldahl nitrogen and iron. Two percent of the samples were analyzed for total solids, total dissolved solids, total organic carbon, dissolved organic carbon, total carbon, and chemical oxygen demand. In addition, less than 1 percent of the samples were analyzed for soluble phosphorus. (Author)
