Studies were conducted during 1972 at five Michigan power plants in which caged brown trout (Salmo trutta) and fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were held for 96 hr in the intake and condenser cooling water discharge channels and in condenser cooling water dechlorinated with sodium thiosulfate. Total residual chlorine levels as low as 0.05 mg/liter were lethal to brown trout below four of the five plants. Total residual chlorine concentrations lethal to 50 percent of the caged brown trout at two plants averaged from 0.02 to 0.18 mg/liter during the chlorination periods. Fathead minnow deaths in all studies could not be attributed to the total residual chlorine. The inconsistent results may be related to interactions between chlorine, temperature, and dissolved oxygen saturation in the discharge channel.
