Actinomycetes have been suspected of causing earthy-musty odors in water since the turn of the century. This study concentrated on the relationship of actinomycetes in northern Green Bay and the Great Lakes continuous to the State of Michigan with the trophic status and point source inputs in the nearshore waters. Five field surveys were conducted at eight stations in northern Green Bay during April-October of 1974. Additionally, twenty-six municipal water supply facilities collected untreated water amples in the spring, summer and fall of 1974. Actinomycete population structure, abundance and history of odor occurrence was determined for each location. Trophic status data was based on simultaneous physical-chemical and phytoplankton surveys in northern Green Bay and from recent limnological literature for the Great Lakes.
