The Environmental Protection Agency, Region VIII conducted a sampling program of the Dillon Reservoir - Blue River System, Colorado over three-day sampling periods during the months of June, July, and August, 1973. A laboratory study of the algal growth potential of the reservoir was included in the study to determine the probable consequences of increased nutrient and molybdenum levels in Dillon Reservoir relating to nuisance algal growths. The report discusses the nutrient levels in the reservoir during the study period, the sources and amounts of nutrient and organic loadings of the major tributaries and wastewater treatment facilities discharging to the reservoir, and the findings of the laboratory algal growth potential study.
