Abstract
Effects of rainfall runoff from a beef cattle feedlot on the water quality of a small impoundment were determined. Changes in chemical concentration of impounded water and changes in the community structure of aquatic organisms were measured and related to the amount and composition of feedlot runoff received. Water quality changes were also monitored in a nearby reservoir which received no feedlot runoff to serve as a control. Changes in chemical concentration or population structure of organisms were not apparent for discharges of about one-part feedlot runoff to 40 parts receiving water. Runoff discharges for two pumping periods with each contributing one-fourth of the volume of the receiving water were shown to degrade water quality in the impoundment. Several significant chemical and biological changes occurred. The most dramatic reduction in the biological community was the suffocation of about 90% of the game fish in the impoundment.
