The Impact of the Bonnet Carre Spillway Opening on Epifaunal Invertebrates in southern Lake Pontchartrain as indicators of water quality (Davis & McCuen, ). levels in Lake. Water quality data were collected by the Lake Pontchartrain Basin Foundation to analyse the faecal coliform bacteria levels, turbidity, salinity, temperature, and dissolved oxygen in the lake water.

INTRODUCTION. Lake Pontchartrain is a large, shallow, low-salinity estuary located north of New Orleans, Louisiana.

It has a mean salinity of ppt (Francis et al., ), a surface area of km 2, and a mean depth of m (Sikora and Kjerfve, ).Higher-salinity waters enter from the east through natural tidal passes and through the Inner Harbor Navigation by: Water Quality Assessment in the Lake Pontchartrain Basin.

Lake Pontchartrain, located in southeastern Louisiana, is one of the largest lakes in the southern part of the United States.

Five major rivers discharge into the Lake directly or indirectly: Amite, Tickfaw, Tangipahoa, Tchefuncte, and Pearl.

Lake Pontchartrain can be found in Darnell (). Collections were made from to (Table 1). Lake Pontchartrain was affected in and by openings of the Bonnet Carr6 Spillway, a flood relief structure con-necting the Mississippi River to Lake Pontchartrain.

It was designed to direct water from the river to the lake during flood. Epifaunal invertebrates as indicators of water quality in southern Lake Pontchartrain. Rep. TR WRRI, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Discrete water-quality and phytoplankton (algae) samples were collected in Lake Pontchartrain from 8 April to 3 October to assess the water-quality nutrient enrichment effects of the diversion on the lake.

The maximum influence of river water in the southern portion of the lake was captured with continuous (hourly) monitoring of nitrate. Poirrier, Michael A.; Mulino, Maureen M.

Proc. Acad. Sci. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), in collaboration with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, monitored bacteriological quality of water at 22 sites in and around Lake Pontchartrain, La., for three consecutive weeks beginning Septemfollowing hurricanes Katrina and Rita and the associated flooding.

Escherichia coli (E. coli), enterococci, and faecal coliform data were collected and compared as potential indicators for swimmability assessment of a brackish waterbody (Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana, USA).

These indicators were measured during lake background conditions, in stormwater runoff (before dilution with lake water), and in the outfall plume within the lake.

Lake Pontchartrain is a large, shallow, oligohaline estuary located in a deteriorating delta of the Mississippi River. The estuary is disturbed by both natural and human factors.

Lake Pontchartrain has a mean salinity of ppt (Francis et al., ), a mean depth of m, and a surface area of km 2 (Sikora and Kjerfve, ). Junot, J.A., Effects of salinity stratification and adverse water quality on the benthic invertebrate community of southern Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana.

In the U.S., studies have focused on characterizing estuaries based on their water quality, susceptibility to pollution based on geomorphologic and flow conditions, and watershed stressors such as land cover and point sources of pollution.

The results of the present study represent a synoptic analysis of sediment quality in coastal waters of Lake Pontchartrain and Mississippi Sound two months after the landfall of Hurricane Katrina.

Posthurricane conditions were compared to prehurricane () conditions, for sediment quality data. There were no exceedances of effects range median (ERM) sediment quality.
