The document presents a generalized protocol for conducting a Toxicity Reduction Evaluation (TRE) at a municipal wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The protocol is designed to provide guidance to municipalities in preparing TRE plans, evaluating the information generated during TREs, and developing a technical basis for the selection and implementation of toxicity control methods. A TRE involves an evaluation of the municipal WWTP performance; an identification of the specific toxicants causing effluent toxicity; a review of the pretreatment and local limits programs; a characterization of the nature, variability and sources of toxicity; and the evaluation, selection and implementation of the toxicity control options. Because of the broad scope of this protocol, it is to be expected that site specific considerations may to some extent warrant modifications and tailoring of the protocol approach for a given facility. The protocol has been developed based on current research and experience. TRE methods and procedures will be updated and refined based on the results of ongoing research and case studies.
