This report presents the technical basis for establishing sediment quality criteria for nonionic organic chemicals, using equilibrium partitioning (EqP). EqP is chosen because it addresses the two principal technical issues that must be resolved: the varying bioavailability of chemicals in sediments and the choice of the appropriate biological effects concentration.
