The objective of this study is to determine the sediment oxygen demand in Monongalia
Lake. The measurements will be utilized in designing a cost~effective aeration system at
the New London Mill Ponds. The activities outlined below were conducted at the Saint
Anthony Falls Laboratory, University of Minnesota:
1.) Determining the chemical composition of sediments at the sediment~water interface;
2.) Sampling 3~5 sediment cores in the field at representative locations within the New
London Mill Pond/lower Monongalia Lake area;
3.) Determining the Sediment Oxygen Demand (SOD) of core samples using appropriate
techniques under controlled laboratory conditions;
4.) Providing summary information to be used by another investigator for a cost-effective
aeration design at the New London Mill Pond.
