Three toxicity models were examined and modified with respect to organisms associated with chlorinating power plants of the Tennessee Valley Authority, viz those of Mattice-Zittel, Turner-Thayer, and Chen-Selleck. Results of the first two were prediction lines based on concentration and exposure duration of chlorine, whereas results of the latter were threshold concentrations for individual species. The Mattice-Zittel model indicated potential biologically unsafe conditions with respect to chlorine for invertebrates at most of the power plants examined, whereas the Turner-Thayer indicated biological safety for invertebrates at all but one of the power plants examined.
