Abstract:

The document discusses water supply problems which occur where combined dependable surface and ground water resources are or will be insufficient to meet present or projected water supply needs. By 1980, water supply problems are expected to occur in six communities in the Basin. By the year 2000 an additional 13 problem areas will develop. Projections to 2020 indicate that there will be a total of 26 water supply problem areas developing in the Basin in the next 50 years. A second discussion concerns water quality control problems, which exist where the design flow of a stream is insufficient to assimilate present and projected biochemical oxygen demand BOD waste discharges to a stream, assuming that secondary waste treatment is effected before discharge. Seventy-five major water quality control problems, resulting from municipal and industrial waste discharges, exist in the Upper Mississippi River Basin at present. It is expected that 24 more water quality control problems will have developed by 2020. Author
