The field investigations of August, 1962 for Lake Granby and Taylor Park Reservoir were intended to provide general information on stratification phenomena in reservoirs of the Colorado River Basin, to aid in project evaluation of low-flow augmentation by proposed reservoirs in the Basin, and promote an understanding of methods of improving water quality downstream from these reservoirs. Data were collected for temperature, dissolved oxygen, 5-day BOD, conductivity, alkalinity, pH, Secchi Disk readings, and plankton enumeration of the main lake, and inflow and outflow waters. Radiological content of bottom lake muds was also determined. Statistical data and a bibliography are included.
