Abstract:

Water quality information was collected at six reservoirs of the New England Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, during the summer and fall of 1981. The reservoirs tested included Ball Mountain in Jamaica, Vermont, Everett and Hopkinton-Elm Brook in Hopkinton, New Hampshire, North Hartland in North Hartland, Vermont, Stoughton Pond and North Springfield in North Springfield, Vermont, and Townshend, Vermont. Field measurements included temperature, pH, conductivity, dissolved oxygen, depth, and the point of visual extinction. Laboratory analyses included determinations of total suspended matter, turbidity, alkalinity, ammonium, nitrate, orthophosphate, total phosphorus, total nitrogen, total organic carbon, heavy metals Zn, Pb, Cd and Cr, fecal coliforms, and chlorophyll a.
