Abstract:

The 70-kilometer long Kishon River is one of Israel’s largest rivers. Its annual discharge may vary substantially, e.g. between 47 and 10 million m3. The lower section of the river has been severely polluted for dozens of years, by industrial effluents containing heavy metals, radionuclides, nutrients, and diverse organic contaminants. The total volume of effluents discharged from the plants into the river stream may contribute as much as 30% of the total water volume. Dissolved organic matter (DOM) and specifically its chromophoric components (CDOM) including humic-like and proteinous substances may form water-soluble complexes with multiple organic and inorganic pollutants and, thus, enhance their release from the sediments and their mobility. The volatility of pollutants, their bioavailability, toxicity and potential to undergo bio-, abiotic and photodegradation may be affected by interactions with CDOM. Therefore, the dynamics of CDOM is important for understanding the fate of pollutants in aquatic environments. In this study, we intended (i) to characterize the seasonal and spatial variability of CDOM at the most contaminated lower section of the Kishon River and (ii) to assess the impact of biodegradation, dilution by seawater and contribution of discharged effluents on the overall dynamics of DOM and CDOM.

Dynamics and Biodegradability of Chromophoric Dissolved Organic Matter in a Severely Polluted River

The 70-kilometer long Kishon River is one of Israel’s largest rivers. Its annual discharge may vary substantially, e.g. between 47 and 10 million m3. The lower section of the river has been severely polluted for dozens of years, by industrial effluents containing heavy metals, radionuclides, nutrients, and diverse organic contaminants. The total volume of effluents discharged from the plants into the river stream may contribute as much as 30% of the total water volume. Dissolved organic matter (DOM) and specifically its chromophoric components (CDOM) including humic-like and proteinous substances may form water-soluble complexes with multiple organic and inorganic pollutants and, thus, enhance their release from the sediments and their mobility. The volatility of pollutants, their bioavailability, toxicity and potential to undergo bio-, abiotic and photodegradation may be affected by interactions with CDOM. Therefore, the dynamics of CDOM is important for understanding the fate of pollutants in aquatic environments. In this study, we intended (i) to characterize the seasonal and spatial variability of CDOM at the most contaminated lower section of the Kishon River and (ii) to assess the impact of biodegradation, dilution by seawater and contribution of discharged effluents on the overall dynamics of DOM and CDOM.
