The research projects supported by the Maine Land and Water Resources Institute in FY 1973 reflect concern with water quality. Some of these projects are: Sludge characterization in design and control of sludge dewatering processes; phosphate retention by lake sediments; the effects of burrowing tubificid worms on exchange of phosphorus in lake sediments; removal of colloidal particles by porous media; dissolved pollution product gases in natural waters; political and environmental attitudes related to water quality and management of the Penobscot River; relationships between phytoplankton, limiting nutrients, and sediment-water in selected Maine lakes; the effects of PCB's and selected herbicides on platymonas Subcordiformis and other algae; Maine Salmon River pesticide contamination; septic tank effluent movement through soils; adsorption as a protective mechanism for water-borne viruses; effect of development in the mountainous regions of Maine on water quality.
