Abstract:

This report describes the methodology and results of an aquatic field survey conducted at the Iowa Army Ammunition Plant IAAP during 1975. The purpose of this study was to establish the biological and chemical impacts of the discharges of a munitions loadassemblypack LAP facility. The most significant munitions component handled at this facility is trinitrotoluene TNT. The IAAP is located ten miles west of Burlington, Iowa. Three streams originate on, or pass through, the plant property. Brush Creek originates on plant property and receives the greatest input of treated wastewater discharges. Consequently, this stream received the primary interest during the study. Two field surveys were conducted, one during the spring period 19-27 June, and the other during the fall 6-16 October.
