Study of Sedimentation Pollution in Gulf Coast Estuaries
(Gulf Universities Research Corporation, 1969)
This proposal outlines an investigation which has been planned to achieve the following objectives: (A) Identify and further develop experimental techniques suitable for studying sedimentation in estuaries. Many experimental ...
Temperature Effects in Clear Lake and Galveston Bay
(Southwest Research Institute - Houston, 1968)
The study of temperature effects in Clear Lake and Galveston Bay was initiated in 1964 when a series of temperature distribution studies were made in Clear Lake prior to the operation of the No. 3 generating unit at the ...

Bio-Assay of Sinclair Refinery's Effluent and Its Effect on Aquatic Life in Corpus Christi Harbor - Pollution Abatement in Regions M-4 through M-9
(Texas Game and Fish Commission, 1960-09-06)
Sinclair Refinery has several toxic pollutants entering Corpus Christi Harbor through a cove dredged for mudshell barges. These pollutants are phenols, sulfides, and oil; however, only traces of oil were located at station ...
Bio-assay of Columbia-Southern Final Effluent and its Potential Effects on the Aquatic Life in Nueces Bay - Pollution Abatement in Regions M-4 through M-9
(Texas Game and Fish Commission, 1960-08-09)
The Columbia Southern Chemical Corporation has reduced the chlorine content of their waste water by agitation through an open culvert. At the present there is no physical or chemical damage being done to aquatic life in ...
Bio-assay and Chemical Analysis of American Smelting and Refining Company Waste and its Effects on Aquatic Life in Corpus Christi Harbor - Pollution Abatement in Region MP-2 (Areas M-4 through M-9)
(Texas Game and Fish Commission, 1960-09-09)
The American Smelting and Refining Company has an acid waste that escapes periodically from a bleed line. The flow is so small the acid waste dissipates before doing any physical harm to aquatic life.
Investigation of the Existence of Oilfield Pollution in the Mission River - Pollution Abatement in Regions M-4 through M-9
(Texas Game and Fish Commission, 1960-11-29)
The main source of pollution in the Mission River is oilfield waste. The fields are old resulting in excessive salt water disposal. The gravity separation of oil and water is inadequate and excessive amounts of oil are ...
Investigation of the Existence of Pollution in Chiltipin Creek - Pollution Abatement in Regions M-4 through M-9
(Texas Game and Fish Commission, 1960-11-01)
The Chiltipin Creek's main function at present is to transport oilfield waste from four major and two minor fields. This high saline and oily waste is slowly destroying nursery grounds for game fish and shrimp and increasing ...
