A combined laboratory and field study has been made to determine the extent of pollution arising from the operation of two-cycle outboard engines in an oligotrophic/mesotrophic lake. The fate of the exhaust products discharged to a lake environment has been studied. Three bays having different boat usage were compared. Attempts have been made to examine the quantities of exhaust products found in the water column, the water surface, and in the bottom sediments. The role of such mechanisms as microbial decomposition, evaporation, and adsorption has been studied. Results of these studies have shown very low levels of hydrocarbons, other than from natural sources, in sediments and the water column. Somewhat greater quantities were found in surface films. The microbiological studies and evaporative studies indicate that these mechanisms play a significant role in the dispersion of engine exhaust products.
