The effect of velocity of water flow, dissolved oxygen concentration and sediment type on the rate of exertion of oxygen demand will be measured. Measurements of microbial biomass and metabolic activity will be made which include isotopic heterotrophic potential studies. A detailed study of the effect of a point source organic effluent on a river benthic microbial population is proposed.
