In 2000, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published the Methodology for Deriving Ambient Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Human Health (USEPA, 2000a). That document (referred to here as the 2000 Human Health Methodology) presents technical guidance and the steps that EPA will follow for deriving new and revised national recommended ambient water quality criteria (AWQCs) for the protection of human health under Section 304(a) of the Clean Water Act. The 2000 Human Health Methodology includes guidance on chemical risk assessment, exposure, and bioaccumulation. To supplement the 2000 Human Health Methodology, EPA is developing series of Technical Support Documents (TSD) on Risk Assessment, Exposure Assessment, and Bioaccumulation. The first volume, (Volume 1: Risk Assessment; EPA-822-B-00-005), was published with the 2000 Methodology in October 2000. This volume (Volume 2) of the Technical Support Document (TSD) focuses on the technical components of the 2000 Human Health Methodology that pertain to the assessment of chemical bioaccumulation.
