||The productivity of the Big Blue River has not increased as the result of impounding Tuttle Creek. The number of algae in the impoundment was always less than observed upstream. In the impoundment, a desirable population of bottom animals has not developed because of an inadequate food supply and excess silt deposition. Aquatic life downstream from Tuttle Creek Reservoir has not been greatly altered by the impounding of the Big Blue River. Because of large fluctuations in flow, the improved water quality resulting from reduction in silt is of little benefit to the aquatic community.
