dc.description.abstract Residents of Studebaker Halls and the Ball State Mobile Home Courts living near Cardinal Creek have complained about offensive odors coming from the creek, from time to time, during the last several years. Complaints have also been made about the general "unsightliness" of the stream. Ball State officials, however, have maintained that the stream has never been the source of the offensive odors about which residents have complained. One explanation of the odors given by the University has been that high temperatures and humidity prevent the diffusion of sewer gas from trailer vent stacks. This sewer gas would then settle in low areas much like smog over a large city. 1.Because the investigator was a resident in the Studebaker complex during the summer of 1966, and because of interest in Limnology stimulated by Dr. Miller and Dr. Hibbs that same summer, the investigator proceeded to plan a limited chemical and biological study of Cardinal Creek to determine the general health of the stream on the Ball State campus. This investigation was planned during the summer of 1967 and begun in September of that year. The bulk of the research was carried out during the Fall Quarter of 1967.1.
