This seminar brought together representatives from industry, state and local governments and biological monitoring consulting firms to present the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Region V perspective on biomonitoring requirements for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit activities. A limited number of industries have the potential for the discharge of toxicants and they will be required to conduct special testing, monitoring and evaluation of their effluents by utilizing biological testing techniques. This seminar was held to clarify the methods and uses of biomonitoring and its application to setting limits in NPDES permits. Presentations were made concerning biological monitoring phytoplanktons, zooplanktons, macroinvertebrates, fish, bacteria, etc. The range of tests include static and flow-through bioassays, including tests for bioaccumulation, Ames tests for mutagenicity, and some rapid assessment methods such as the fish cough response test.
"This seminar was conducted in cooperation with The Enforcement Division, Region V, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. "May 1980." Includes bibliographical references.
