Preliminary surveys during the initial stabilization period of the first year following impoundment indicated the following: Algal growth potential tests show West Point Lake's waters to be highly productive. The models of Vollenweider, Dillon and Larsen-Mercier predict that the lake will become eutrophic, even with a 95% reduction of the phosphorus input from the upstream metropolitan area of Atlanta, Georgia. Severity of acute dissolved iron and manganese problems experienced by downstream water users following impoundment was lessened by the portion of a coffer dam left in place upstream of the main dam. Bacteriologically, both the lake and its discharge waters were of overall good quality where sampling was conducted. No major problems with pesticides or toxic metals were indicated. This report contains a sixteen item bibliography.
