Abstract:

This purpose of this report is to present and briefly interpret the water quality data collected to date in relation to the operation and control of Francis E. Walter Dam and Reservoir which is located at the convergence of Bear Creek and Lehigh River in Luzerne, Carbon and Monroe Counties in Northeast Pennsylvania. Included in the report itself are general characteristics of the area influenced by the dam, the project itself and the basin area draining into the lake. The water sampling data collected during calendar year 1981 indicated that the water quality in the Lake remains within the standards established by Pennsylvania DER and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Results for the parameters such as dissolved oxygen, phosphorous, total dissolved solids, conductance, ammonia, nitrate and nitrite have remained fairly uniform and are within allowable limits for the water samples collected and analyzed during the testing period.
