The report contains the results of a study conducted for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to evaluate the chemical effects of dumping of snow collected from the municipal streets into watercourses or waterbodies in three selected areas: a large river (Mohawk at Schenectady, N.Y.), a smaller river (Concord at Lowell, MA.), and a small pond (Horn at Woburn, MA.). Unusually low snowfall during the winters of 1972-73 and 1973-74 together with a nationwide gasoline shortage (which limited or curtailed snow dumping operations) resulted in insufficient data.
