On 24, 25, and 26 April, 1971 a sporadic survey was made of the algae along the shorelines of the Chain 0* Lakes. The purpose of this survey was to pinpoint the location of algae growths and determine the relationship between such growths and nutrient sepage from the waste disposal units of certain structures along the shoreline. Although the data received is incomplete, an essential segment of the complete study has been accomplished. That is, we have determined the location of potential algal blooms, thus suppling future surveys with the exact places at which to obtain further data.
