This report summarzies preliminary assessments of the historical water quality conditions, as related to applicable water quality standards, found in the Cahaba River. This assessment focuses on pollutants (especially toxicants) observed along the upper and middle reaches of the Cahaba River. Additional work is needed to evaluate water quality conditions in the other portions of the river, to better estimate the magnitude of some of the likely pollutant sources of the problem pollutants, and to update the evaluation using more recent data.
