A dissolved oxygen deficiency resulting from the oxygen demand exerted by unoxidized nutrients (ammonia-N or organic-N) will exist in the proposed impoundment. Supplemental aeration or other corrective action will be required to meet standards for dissolved oxygen. Major nutrient inputs will result from forest and pasture litter and from fertilizer washout. Minor, but still significant inputs will result from runoff of confined animal feeding operations, discharge from a small domestic oxidation pond and from polluted groundwater entering the upper end of the drainage basin. Most of the minor inputs can be partially eliminated by improved waste handling practices, reducing supplemental aeration requirements. The degree of eutrophication experienced by the proposed impoundment will depend on control of nutrient sources. High fecal coliform densities encountered represent storm water runoff under free flowing stream conditions. However, isolated shoreline areas which receive direct washoff from confined animal feeding waste sources would still not be acceptable for body contact recreation.
