Fate of mutagenic activity during conventional treatment of municipal wastewater sludge.

Abstract

The mutagenic activity of wastewater was followed during conventional activated sludge treatment at a municipal plant. Raw wastewater was initially screened for mutagenic potential, using the AmesSalmonella/mammalian microsomal test and employer tester strains. The combined raw wastewater produced dose-related mutagenic responses in the presence of S9… (More)
