AbstractA study was conducted during the Summer of 1970 to determine the water quality changes in a small mountain stream due to a septic tank system serving a resort area. Samples collected upstream and downstream of the plant effluent were analyzed for various chemical and bacteriological parameters of pollution. Pollution was found not to be confined to the downstream reach, but also extended above the plant effluent because of other sources. Although the level of degradation at the point of sewage addition was not of a severe magnitude, improvements in the disposal of liquid wastes are desirable for the protection of the recreation area.
