The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) initiated the National Lake Survey to quantify the number, location, and characteristics of lakes in the United States with little or no acid neutralizing capacity (ANC). Presumably, the lakes with low ANC are at greatest risk to acidification from atmospheric deposition. In autumn 1984, EPA sampled 1792 lakes in the eastern United States; those results are reported in Linthurst et al. (1986). The companion project of the Eastern Lake Survey is the Western Lake Survey, conducted in autumn of 1985. The purpose of the paper is to present results of the Western Lake Survey and to illustrate the characteristics of these lakes in the context of acidic deposition impacts. (Copyright (c) 1988 E.
