Bacteriological studies of the Lake Erie nearshore and embayments (1973) and the mouth of the Grand River (1975-76)
Three surveys of the Canadian nearshore waters of Lake Erie were carried out in 1973 in order to determine the bacteriological quality of these waters. Most of the nearshore waters are of relatively good quality, with the exception of certain embayment areas and harbours (e.g. Wheatley Harbour). Significantly elevated levels of all bacterial parameters were found near the mouth of the Detroit River in all three surveys with the highest levels being detected in September.
