Abstract
In August, 1955 the U. S. Public Health Service, the Pennsylvania Department of Health, the City of Meadville, Pennsylvania, and the Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army, cooperated in a survey on French Creek. Principal objectives of the survey were as follows: To determine the present chemical, physical, and biological quality of the stream, to determine the nature, volume, and strength of the major waste loads discharged to the stream in the Meadville area, to estimate the deoxygenation and reoxygenation characteristics of the stream and thereby determine the ability of the stream to assimilate pollution loads, and to predict the effect of a future increase in waste load on the oxygen resources of the stream as a result of possible population increases and/or industrial expansion.
