Abstract
In January 1956, field studies were initiated on a cooperative basis to determine the possible effects of industrial wastes from major Buffalo River industries on the eastern end of Lake Erie and the Niagara River. Buffalo River industries on the eastern end of Lake Erie and the Niagara River. Buffalo River industries cooperating in this project were National Aniline Division-Allied Chemical and Dye Corporation, Donner-Hanna Coke Corporation, and Socony-Mobile Company. Part I of this report covers an investigation of the toxicity to fish of intake water and final effluent from the Donner-Hanna Coke Corporation. By-product coke wastes contain some chemical compounds which are known to be toxic to aquatic life in relatively low concentration. Part II of this report covers an investigation of the toxicity to fish of the various process wastes.
