EFFECT OF SOIL ON THE MUTAGENIC PROPERTIES OF WASTE WATER.

Abstract

The disposal of complex mixtures such as waste water on agricultural lands poses known and unknown environmental risks. Mutagens may be introduced into the eco-system and perhaps concentrated by crop plants or leached into ground water supplies. The purpose of this study was to determine the biological effect of a mutagenic waste water before and after application to soil. We used an XAD-8 methanol extract of waste water from the municipal sewage treatment facility at Sauget, IL. After separation of solid and liquid portions by filtration, dichloromethane was added to extract the organic fractions from each component. The neutral fraction was the most mutagenic fraction followed by the weak acid, strong acid and basic fractions.
