At 30 degree oxygen solubility is about 7.75 ppm. At 20 degree solubility increases to about 9.25 ppm. This data reflects that water reservoirs with lower temperatures are of superior quality oxygen levels as compared to that having higher temperatures. Moreover, surface water will have less oxygen dissolved as compared to the water beneath it.
