The objective of the Project was to determine strengths of known sources of wastes and to obtain an accurate picture of quality at any point in the waters under study. A large number of samples were collected and analyzed to yield the physical, chemical, and bacteriological data necessary to evaluate the waste loading and water quality. A system of sampling was set up to gather data from the Detroit River and tributaries, Michigan part of Lake Erie, beaches, industrial outfalls, and municipal outfalls. Section II presents comprehensive surveys of the six major sewage treatment plants in the Project's study area. These were carried out at various times throughout the summer and fall in cooperation with the Michigan Department of Health to determine the waste loads to the river at different seasons of the year. The plants surveyed were Belle Isle, Detroit, Grosse Ile (Potawatamee Woods Subdivision), Monroe, Trenton, and Wyandotte. (Author)
