High fecal coliform densities plus Salmonella isolations in the Cedar Creek watershed, represent free flowing streams under stormwater runoff conditions. Increased retention time after impoundment will cause a decrease in both fecal coliform densities as well as the presence of Salmonella. These decreases should be sufficient to make the waters acceptable for body contact recreation. Increased retention time in the impoundment will tend to dampen water quality variations now present in the free flowing stream. The occasional high nutrient concentrations observed during this study will be more diluted by the impoundment to levels acceptable for a variety of water uses. Potential problems in the E-6 arm of the drainage basin can be partially, if not completely, alleviated by improved animal husbandry waste handling practices. The eutrophication potential for this impoundment will depend on control of nutrient sources.
