Representatives of the aquatic invertebrate species of water flea (Daphnia magna), midge (Chironomus tentans), and scud (Gammarus fasciatus); and the fish species bluegill (Lepomis macrochirus), fathead minnow (Pimephales promelas), and brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) were chronically exposed to various concentrations of atrazine in separate flowing-water systems. Maximum acceptable toxicant concentrations (MATC) of atrazine for the selected species in soft water were estimated using survival, growth, and reproduction as indicators of toxic effects. The incipient-LC50 for fishes and the 48-hour LC50 for invertebrates was estimated from acute exposures and was used to calculate application factors (MATC/LC50).
