A time-of-travel study was made on a 106-mile reach of the Tuscarawas River to determine average velocity and dispersion characteristics between selected points. The reach was divided into five subreaches, and a fluorescent dye used as a tracer material. At about the 50-percent flow-duration level, time of travel of the peak concentration was 137 hours.
