Summary/Recommendations/Objectives:

The

 

1977 study is the seventh yearly survey of water Quality-biological productivity


of the Conecuh-Escambia Rivers conducted by personnel ‘of the Department
of Fisheries and Allied Aqnacultures of Auburn University: Prior to these
studies

 

on the stretch of these two rivers between Brewton, Alabama, and


Escambia Bay in Florida, the’Institute of Paper Chemistry of Appleton,
Wisconsin, had conducted

 

15 surveys.

The primary objectiveof these yearly surveys is to determine if major

 

changes


in water quality or biological productivity are evident during periods of low river
flow.

 

The water quality survey is primarily concerned with nutrient and elemental


analyses since chemists of Container Corporation of America maintain a constant
surveillance

 

on dissolved oxygen and carbon contents of these waters. Current


biological studies utilize standardized sets of benthic plate samplers, placed at
fixed stations, and for uniform periods of time each year. ‘
The results obtained by the

 

1977 survey are summarized in this report.
