A sampling and analysis program on the Androscoggin River and at International Paper Company's Androscoggin Mill in Jay, Maine was undertaken to determine the origin and chemical composition of Androscoggin River foam. The report documents an extremely complex chemical composition of river foam. A mass balance of downstream river foam accounts for approximately 50 percent of both organic and inorganic matter. River samples downstream of both industrial and municipal point sources foamed, but locations upstream of any point sources foamed as well.
