Effects of sewage abatement on water and sediment chemistry, Navisink River, New Jersey
A primary sewage treatment plant on the Navesink River at Red Bank, New Jersey, ceased operation after December 1971. Inorganic phosphate and disolved oxygen analyses were run on water samples before and after sewage abatement, as were analyses for calcium, iron, and aluminum phosphate in the sediment. The water chemistry returned to normal within 1 mth of abatement, while sedimentary phosphate values increased. The sediment appears to be a phosphate sink rather than a reservoir.
