Water quality assessment of small water supply reservoir using statistical and analytical methods
We evaluated twenty-eight years (1980-2007) of spatial-temporal water quality data from Deer Creek reservoir in Utah. The data came from three sampling points representing the lotic, transitional and lentic zones and included measurements of climatological, hydrological, and surface water quality conditions. The time frame spanned dates before and after the completion of the Jordanelle Reservoir (1987-1992), approximately fourteen miles upstream of Deer Creek. Our analysis showed changed conditions in Deer Creek prior to dam construction. On average chlorophyll-a and phosphorus levels have dropped ...
