Impact assessment of the Lawrence waste water treatment plant on the Wakarusa River: follow-up assessment. Central Plains Center for BioAssessment

This two-year study continues the chemical and biological monitoring of the Wakarusa River that we performed in 2013-2015 prior to the City of Lawrence’s new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) coming into operation in 2018. That 2013-2015 baseline study fulfilled a pre-discharge monitoring requirement for the discharge permit that the City obtained from the Kansas Department of Environment and Health.
