dc.description.abstract A series of biological studies on the Thames River watershed were implemented to illustrate the effect of various water use practices on aquatic life and to recommend proper watershed management approaches designed to provide water of a satisfactory quality to support a healthy biotic system and to optimize water use. A detailed study of bottom-dwelling organisms was conducted at eighteen sites on the portion of the river flowing through London during the summer of 1970. In 1971, a survey of bottom fauna and fish populations was completed at 58 stations distributed throughout the entire watershed. Finally in 1973, a study of three flood control impoundments in the Upper Thames River basin was undertaken.
