A joint United States-Sweden effluent field study on the Gota Alv River was conducted on site in Sweden in the fall of 1985. The Gota Alv River has a mean flow of 575 cu m/s and is the largest river in Sweden. There are many industrial dischargers along the river and Sweden has been concerned about their impact on the aquatic organisms. A variety of toxicity tests were run on different test organisms to evaluate the acute and chronic toxicity of selected effluents along the river and ambient station waters from the length of the river. In addition to Sweden and the United States tests, Germany and the Netherlands ran toxicity tests with Hydra and instream biological monitoring with a freshwater mussel, respectively.
