The report is part of a comprehensive water quality management study of the Potomac River Basin. In recent months there has been considerable public interest in the operation of the Piscataway Wastewater Treatment Plant (PWTP) of the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) and the effect of plant effluent on the water quality of Piscataway Creek. A series of field surveys was conducted by CFS on the efficiency of the PWTP and on water quality in Piscataway Creek. Although the scope of this report is primarily limited to The Piscataway Creek and the adjacent reaches of the Potomac Estuary, other embayments in the area were investigated in order to compare the Piscataway results with similar embayments including three not receiving treated water discharges.
