A general guide for studying water quality of streams is presented. Specific procedures peculiar to stream pollution studies are dealt with at some length. General principles and techniques rather than exact methodology are covered. For example, various techniques are given by which time-of-water travel may be measured, rather than an exact description of dye-concentration measurement. Each chapter, except the last, is devoted to a single factor, principle or procedure involved in studies of water quality. One chapter, for example, deals with objectives of stream studies. It lists some of the reasons for conducting studies and discusses the importance of careful and thorough delineation of the objectives of a particular study before it starts. Another chapter has suggestions for preparation of a report on water quality. The last chapter suggests an orderly sequence for the conduct of stream studies. It attempts to wrap the essence of the preceding chapters in one package, without excessive repetition. The material is limited to information that is not ordinarily found in textbooks and technical articles. (WRSIC abstract)
