Abstract
Suspended solids data and asbestos fiber concentrations are presented as measured by X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy of potable water supply samples collected from around the western arm of Lake Superior during the fall of 1973. The data show a trend of decreasing concentrations as one proceeds from Silver Bay in a counterclockwise manner around the western arm of the Lake. A qualitative agreement between concentrations measured by X-ray diffraction and by transmission electron microscopy is apparent.
