Abstract
The report summarizes the involvement of the Federal Government in achieving municipal waste treatment on the lower 800 mile reach of the Missouri River. Included in the narrative are descriptions of unique field investigations involving the use of fecal sterols as a pollution indicator, the isolation of enteric virus, and the measurement of fish flesh tainting potential and periphyton communities as related to waste outfalls. In addition, intensive bacteriological investigations of densities of the fecal coliform group, fecal streptococci and salmonella are discussed. Complete documentation of all known recent water quality investigations is contained in the Appendix. The report provides comprehensive technical support for a policy of secondary treatment for waste discharges into the Missouri River. (Author)
