The research study was directed towards an assessment of effects on water quality in shallow water bodies (less than 30 feet deep) due to mixing by boating activity. Definition of the problem, isolation of effects and conditions and determination of areas for further research were stressed. Four shallow lakes in Orange County, FL., namely Lake Mizell, Lake Osceola, Lake Maitland, and Lake Claire were studied. Changes in several water quality parameters before and after limited boating activity were monitored. Agitation and mixing by boating activity destratified the lake and in some cases, increased oxygen concentration and the rate of oxygen uptake by suspended matter. An increase in turbidity was observed and was generally dependent on water depth, motor power, and nature of bottom deposits.
