This trend can be explained mainly by the simple mixing of waters with different degrees of mineralization and organic content. Thus the centroids of the samples taken from 1981 to 1984 (symbols A and 0 ) can all be found in the upper center part of the figure, since all the stations have shown the same decomposition mechanisms and homogenization. Analysis of the particular changes at a specific station will make it easier to follow the events caused by impounding. The circled symbols have been taken at the "Toto station".

7 2 . The two polygons in Figure 6 define the position of the sample-points of each group in the reduced space of the first two principal components. The two groups can be distinguished by the value of dissolved oxygen in their samples. Roughly speaking the samples of the group on the right have dissolved oxygen saturation rates below 20% and those on the left have a saturation rate above 2 0 % . This boundary corresponds to the zone of rapid change of the redox potential. The solubility of a number of compounds substantially increases in a reductive environment (Wetzel, 1 9 7 5 ) .

This figure shows the correlation between the various parameters and their relative contribution to each of the principal axes. It shows strong correlation between conductivity, bicarbonates and pH. These correlations are well known, since these parameters correspond to the main ions. This figure also shows good correlations between the following parameters: tannins, total organic carbon, color and total Kjeldahl nitrogen. These parameters all measure the organic matter present which, before or after the impounding, was essentially of allochthonous origin (Schetagne, 1985).
