The manual contains short-term methods for measuring the toxicity of chemical contaminants in soil, sediment, surface water, and groundwater samples. The algal assay is a chronic test, while all other tests described in the manual are acute tests. The methods are one of several tools, including chemical analysis and field study, used to determine toxicity of hazardous waste sites. The toxicity tests provided in the manual can be used to detect toxic materials, rank sites based on relative short-term toxicity, and provide a cost-effective approach to monitoring the effectiveness of site cleanup. The toxicity tests in the manual are not required by regulation. However, because toxicity tests measure the integrated effects of complex chemical waste mixtures, they provide a reasonable basis for assessing the toxicity of waste products independent of existing concentration criteria.
