This report was derived from field studies carried out during the period from December 1972 to June 1973 and was designed expressly to continue and complement the similar study performed for the Trinity Environmental Section under Contract DACW 63-72-C-0142, entitled Environmental Study of the Trinity River Basin. Together these two reports yield data from an entire year of observations. The object of the investigations was to provide information for possible future controls in the Trinity River Basin, in order to maintain normal biological productivity levels in Trinity Bay. This report is advisory and does not necessarily constitute the final project concept to be adopted and approved by the US Army Corps of Engineers.
