The residents of the city of Tampa have reported obnoxious odors along the western shore of Hillsborough Bay for many years. This odor had historically been associated with excessive growths of attached algae and general poor water quality attributable to waste discharges. At the request of local authorities and the Florida State Board of Health, FWPCA initiated extensive field and laboratory investigations in Hillsborough Bay in June 1967. The objectives of these studies were: to identify and quantify key sources of waste in Hillsborough Bay and to determine their effect on water use; to determine the cause or causes of noxious odors in Hillsborough Bay and; to recommend means of modifying conditions in Hillsborough Bay to eliminate the causes of obnoxious odors and make possible other desirable uses.
