A standardized protocol has been developed to provide guidance for conducting acute (death or immobility) and chronic (survival and reproduction) toxicity of solid waste leachates to Daphnia magna. The method with slight modifications is applicable for testing toxicants in general. Acute test results are reported as a 48-hour EC50 (concentration at which 50 percent of test organisms are killed or immobilized after 48 hours of exposure) with 95 percent confidence intervals. Chronic test results are reported as 21-day LC50s (concentration at which 50 percent of test organisms were killed during 21-day exposures) with 95 percent confidence limits, the lowest concentration at which there was a significant (95 percent confidence interval) effect on reproduction and the highest concentration at which there was no significant effect.
