Abstract
During September, 1962, a large-scale fish control project was initiated on the upper Green River in order to eliminate rough fish populations prior to the closure of Flaming Gorge Dam, which would form a 90-mile-long reservoir. The toxicant operation was successful in eliminating the fish, and the activated carbon removed toxicity, taste, and odor from the treated river water to a satisfactory degree for domestic use.
