Abstract:

This report describes the methodology and results of microbiological field and laboratory studies conducted at the Iowa and Joliet Army Ammunition Plants during 1975. The purpose of this study was to establish the impact of microorganisms in determining the environmental fate of TNT wastewater in receiving streams. An attempt was made to define threshold toxicity levels and relative rates of TNT transformation in streams receiving low volume waste discharges IAAP versus streams receiving high volume waste discharges JAAP.
