This report was done to determine if there was any pollution in Little Beaver Creek. The concentrations of the parameters tested for were compared with state and federal regulations for drinking water. There were seven water samples collected at different places along the stream and its tributaries and each was tested for its concentration of sodium, lead, sulfate, chloride, nitrate as nitrogen, and phosphate content. The method used for each parameter test is explained along with the results. There is also a discussion about who is in charge of Pollution Abatement in Ohio.
