Abstract: Manganese may appear seasonally in some impoundments while part of impoundment is anaerobic; possible source may be reduction of insoluble manganese dioxide found in soil by carbon dioxide produced as anaerobic byproduct of biological metabolism; reduction of manganese by sludge gas, independent of sludge itself; experiments to determine whether sludge gases were cause of manganese solubization.
