This report documents the procedures, wastewater analysis results, water quality effects and biological effects of limestone quarring and processing operations on surface streams. Data was gathered by on site sampling of process steams (treated and untreated) at nine limestone operations and biological sampling of the receiving streams. Published data was gathered on the general effects of constituents present in wastewater streams and effects of limestone effluents are evaluated on information from the literature and sampling.
