Results of a joint U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Geological Survey sampling effort conducted during 1982 and 1983 on three lakes in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area of Colorado are summarized. Ned Wilson, Oyster and Upper Island Lakes were surveyed. They are representative of the range of sensitive lakes in the area threatened by acid deposition. Biological and chemical lake characteristics are assessed to determine efficient monitoring approaches for the three index lakes and similar lakes of the area.
