Procedures are described for testing freshwater organisms in the laboratory to evaluate the potential toxicity or bioaccumulation of chemicals in whole sediments. Sediments may be collected from the field or spiked with compounds in the laboratory. Toxicity methods are outlined for two organisms, the amphipod Hyalella azteca and the midge Chironomus tentans. Toxicity tests with amphipods or midges are conducted for 10 d in 300-mL chambers containing 100 mL of sediment and 175 mL of overlying water. Overlying water is renewed daily and test organisms are fed during the toxicity tests. The endpoints in the 10-d toxicity test with H. azteca and C. tentans are survival and growth. Procedures are primarily described for testing freshwater sediments; however, estuarine sediments (up to 15 salinity) can also be tested in 10-d sediment toxicity tests with H. azteca. Guidance is also provided for conducting long-term sediment toxicity tests with H. azteca and C. tentans.
