Abstract

Concentrations of chemical constituents of Michigan streams exhibit regional patterns that are primarily a function of geology and evapotranspiration. However, in some areas waste disposal by municipal and industrial organizations has altered the natural distribution and concentrations of dissolved material. Concentration and areal distribution of chemical constitutents were found to change very little from high spring to low summer flow conditions.
