This manual describes chronic toxicity tests for use in the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permits Program to identify effluents and receiving waters containing toxic materials in chronically toxic concentrations. With the exception of the Red Macroalga, Champia parvula, Reproduction Test Method 1009.0, the methods included in this manual are referenced in Table IA, 40 CFR Part 136 regulations and, therefore, constitute approved methods for chronic toxicity tests. They are also suitable for determining the toxicity of specific compounds contained in discharges. The tests may be conducted in a central laboratory or on-site, by the regulatory agency or the permittee. The Red Macroalga, Champia parvula, Reproduction Test Method 1009.0 is not listed at 40 CFR Part 136 for nationwide use.
