Soil Conservation Service plans to construct two multipurpose impoundments in the Upper Leaf River Watershed in Smith County, Mississippi. Primary contact recreation is included in the proposed uses for the impoundments. At the request and support of the Soil Conservation Service, a bacterial water quality study was conducted to determine the bacterial quality of the stream waters within the watershed, the adequacy of the water quality for contact recreation, and possible control measures to implement if the quality proved unsatisfactory.
