Abstract

As of the 2014 reporting year, Bayou Chene and Lacassine Bayou in southwestern Louisiana are listed as impaired Previous HitwaterNext Hit bodies under the Clean Previous HitWaterNext Hit Act. In both bayous, low dissolved oxygen is listed among the causes of impairment. In order to develop strategies for improving Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit, it is necessary to understand the influence of natural conditions on dissolved oxygen and other Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit parameters. Accordingly, a three-part study of the relationship between hydrology, geology, and surface Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit in Bayou Chene and Lacassine Bayou was proposed. First, a Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit study was conducted to ascertain seasonal and spatial variations in surface Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit. Second, a geological study was proposed to assess spatial variations in the properties of Pleistocene and Holocene sediment deposits. Third, a geospatial and statistical analysis was proposed to relate the results of the geological study and the Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit study; research results on this relationship will be presented. In addition, data on soils, climate, Previous HitwaterNext Hit depth, flow rate, and historical Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit were gathered from secondary sources. Regression analysis of these data, along with preliminary results from the Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityNext Hit study, suggests influences on Previous HitwaterNext Hit Previous HitqualityTop from climate and agricultural activities.
