This Technical Support Document Volume 3: Development of Site-Specific Bioaccumulation Factors (Site-Specific TSD) provides technical details on how state and tribal water quality staff scientists or risk assessors ('investigators'), who are responsible for deriving state or tribal water quality standards, may develop site-specific bioaccumulation factors (BAFs) for use in deriving ambient water quality criteria for protecting human health. Guidance on different approaches that investigators can take and the factors that should be considered when selecting an approach for a given situation is provided. This information allows states and tribes to derive BAFs that are more representative of the bioaccumulation potential at a given location.
