The principal contents of the report are comparisons of water quality parameters for the Delaware Estuary with those previously estimated for years ending 1963. Data on water quality were also obtained for a number of major pollution sources. Comparisons show that previous mathematical models for the Delaware Estuary can still be used to verify dissolved oxygen levels. Current levels of dissolved oxygen fail to meet the standards established by the Commission. It is stated that in the future, regulation of carbonaceous raw waste of industry and municipalities will be sufficient to meet these standards, but no basis for this prediction is outlined in the report. The report provides background for further analysis of economically feasible alternatives programs on the Delaware River. (WRSIC abstract)
