Abstract:
Throughout 1974 and 1975 the Department of Hydrology and Water Resources, University of Arizona, conducted a water quality study on Lake Havasu, Arizona, near the Central Arizona Project intake. This investigation was funded jointly by the Arizona Water Commission and the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation. The University study evaluated the hydrography and hydrology, sediments, turbidity, temperature, chemistry, dissolved oxygen (and biochemical oxygen demand), benthic invertebrates, phytoplankton, zooplankton, biomass analysis, and electrical conductivity to establish baseline data for the CAP intake area. The results showed weak stratification and generally good aeration in the lake and high turbidity in the Bill Williams River. Biological quality was good with low amounts of benthics and numerous zooplankton and phytoplankton species. The extensive data from chemical analysis generally conformed to public health standards.
