The Corps of Engineers has been monitoring dissolved oxygen levels in several areas of Truman Lake. Continual high inflows from tributary streams inundated large expanses of terrestrial vegetation and the decomposition of this material is depressing oxygen levels in some arms of the lake (i.e. late last week measurements revealed 3 ppm at the surface which would be stressful to fish occupying these zones). The turbidity created by these high inflows also limits photosynthesis which in turn reduces oxygen production. At this time we believe that fish will find oxygen refugia in clearer parts of the lake where adequate oxygen is available (e.g. Tebo arm was 7 ppm). The possibility of a fish kill can not be ruled out, but it appears that the fish community will be able to "weather this storm."
