Abstract:

Laboratory and field studies were conducted from September 23-28, and October 16, 1974 at the Holston Army Ammunition Plant HAAP to determine the effects of munition manufacturing wastes on the aquatic life in the Holston River, Tennessee. In addition to laboratory and field determinations of selected chemical and physical parameters the following aquatic groups were investigated bacteria, protozoa, phytoplankton, periphyton, zooplankton, benthic macroinvertebrates and fish. Analytical data generated in this study are based on the results obtained from single grab samples and should be considered within that limitation. Of the physicalchemical in situ parameters, only pH and temperature appeared to be influenced by the plant. The contribution of waste sources from other industries located upstream tended to mask any impact of HAAP discharges on the water quality of the Holston River.
