This one-year study measured fecal coliform and Klebsiella bacteria densities in several of Wisconsin's pulp and paper mill processing wash waters, treated waters, and waters receiving pulp and paper mill effluent discharge. The isolation of fecal coliform bacteria ranged from as low as the minimum detectable level of less than 10 organisms/1000 ml water sample to as high as an estimated 1,000,000 organisms/100 ml water sample. Water data were obtained from an effluent survey of twenty plants and a within-plant survey of three mills. The findings from this study support previous investigations concerning the selective growth of coliform bacteria in pulp and paper mills utilizing processed water recycle loops.
