1. STARTING SITUATION On the site of an ammunition plant, waste water contaminated with explosive was seeping into a trickling pond until 1982. The pond is about 300m long and was overgrown by trees and shrubs. For the site, a risk assessment was first undertaken. The soil in this area was highly contaminated with TNT and its transformation products. On-site concentrations of up to 50g/kg TNT were measured. A concentration of around 1g/kg was retained at 1m below the surface. Crystalline TNT (Figure 1) was identified in the soil in the vicinity of the pond inlet.

Edulis to the internal exposure dose will have increased over two fold, that of C. cibarius will have fallen by 25%, that of R. paludosa will have slightly increased, and that of X. chrysenteron decreased. The relative contribution of fresh mushrooms will also have changed: B. edulis up about two fold, C. 3 fold, R. 1 fold, and X. 4 fold. The 42 O. ORLOV ET AL. 5 fold. 8 fold reduction. 6. Conclusion For the inhabitants of the exclusion zone, situated in a forested region without well-developed economic and social infrastructures, it is of interest to estimate the relative contributions to internal exposure of forest food (berries and mushrooms) and conventional agricultural food (potatoes and milk).
