Abstract : A study of the aquatic environment of Loring AFB was conducted between 18-29 Jun 1973 in order to assess levels of pollution in Malabeam Lake, Greenlaw Brook and other on-base streams. The east branch of Greenlaw Brook exhibited evidence of chronic pollution resulting from the discharge of industrial wastes. Further downstream, Greenlaw Brook was polluted with raw and partially treated sewage. Results of sampling revealed no pollution problems in the west branch of Greenlaw Brook or Malabeam Lake that would be harmful to human health. (Modified author abstract)
