The limnology of two 850 acre wastewater storage lagoons was investigated from September 1973, shortly after the initial filling, through August 1974. Special emphasis was placed upon the biological aspects of these lagoons. During the period of study, the East Lagoon received most of the wastewater, while the West Lagoon received mostly land drainage and seepage water. Due to these different waters in each lagoon, differences in most of the parameters were apparent between the two lagoons. Chironomid larvae comprised virtually all of a scant benthic population in both lagoons, with different dominant genera in each body of water. The dominant zooplankton in the East Lagoon were cyclopoid copepods, with Cyclops vernalis the most common form, while calanoid copepods and Daphnia were dominant in the West Lagoon. Chlorophyll a and primary productivity were measured and numerous physical-chemical parameters were also investigated.
