The August 1962 stream surveys evaluated interstate pollution of the Coosa River System, and local pollution problems requiring correction were also observed. Data were gathered on water uses, including hydroelectric power, water supply, and recreation. Principal waste discharges were examined for these rivers: Chattooga, Etowah, Oostanaula, and Coosa. Organic and bacterial pollution data are reported, along with information on silt pollution and road bank and soil erosion. Tabular data are appended.
