A surveillance program has been maintained on two shallow, warm water prairie lakes and their tributaries. One of these lakes, Lake Madison, is domestically polluted with the effluent from the sewage treatment plant of Madison, South Dakota. The other, Lake Herman, is polluted due to siltation caused by run-off from a large, intensively farmed watershed. This surveillance program has resulted in comparisons of chemical nutrients and biota of a heavily silted lake with those of a relatively unsilted, but domestically polluted lake. The surveillance program on the Lake Herman tributaries has also led to conclusions regarding nutrient levels in successive spring run-offs. (Modified author abstract)
