As a condition of the modified National Pollutant Discharge Eliminatiion System (NPDES) permit issued to the K-25 Site on September 11, 1986, a Biological Monitoring and Abatement Program was developed for the receiving stream (Mitchell Branch or K-1700 stream). The objectives are to 1) demonstrate that the effluent limitations established for the Oak Ridge K-25 Site protect and maintain the use of Mitchell Branch for growth and propagation of fish and other acquatic life and 2) document the effects on stream biota resulting from operation of major new polution abatement facilities, including the Central Neutralization Facility and the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Incinerator. The four tasks of the program are 1) ambient toxicity testing; 2) bioaccumulation studies, 3) biological indicator studies, and 4) ecological surveys of stream communities. This document is the second in a series of reports on the Oak Ridge K-25 Site Biological Monitoring and Abatement Program. It describes studies that were conducted over various periods of time between August 1987 and June 1990.
