The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, an independent international organization for promotion of economic development in member countries, is concerned with both the qualitative and quantitative aspects of economic growth. The Environment Committee of OECD is assisted by a number of delegate groups concerned with policy development in specific sectors of the overall environmental problem. One of these groups is the Water Management Sector Group, which in 1971 established a Steering Group on Eutrophication Control to develop a series of cooperative projects for monitoring eutrophication in inland waters. The overall objective of these projects was the achievement of comparability on nutrient budgets, chemical balances, and biological productivity in water bodies. In the United States 22 waterbodies were included in the program. Final reports on the limnology of each have been compiled by the United States investigators and are contained in this publication.
