Abstract:

Potential effects of flood control structures on water quality in the Upper Yazoo Project UYP area is of concern. This study was designed to provide information in the following five subject areas general water quality in the Yazoo River, general water quality in Bear Creek, effects of channelization in a selected reach of the Yazoo River, pesticide contamination in sediments of the UYP area, and baseline data on water quality in selected oxbow lakes. Emphasis was placed on comparing historical water quality data with current data to define general trends since the 1970s. Results indicated that general water quality in most study areas has improved.
