The report describes an investigation to determine the validity of laboratory toxicity tests to predict biological impact in receiving water. The first site visit in February 1983 was adversely affected by heavy rainfall immediately preceding and during the visit. Two of the treatment plants were discharging at twice their design flows and stream sampling was difficult. The second visit was in October 1983 when flow conditions were acceptable. The results of this study combined with those of previous published studies and ones yet to be completed will be used to recommend the best available way to predict the impacts of discharges on biological communities using effluent and ambient toxicity tests. The data from this study clearly indicate the utility of effluent toxicity tests.
