The report describes methods for the measurement of the acute toxicity of effluents to macroinvertebrates and fish. The methods include a preliminary short-term (8-24 hr.), range-finding test and a long-term (96 hr.), or alternate static definitive test for use in determining the LC50 or EC50 of the waste. The report includes guidelines on effluent sampling and holding, facilities and equipment, dilution water, test species selection and handling, and data interpretation.
Supplement to "Biological field and laboratory methods for measuring the quality of surface waters and effluent." Includes bibliographical references (pages 26-28).
