The report covers an investigation of the toxicity to fish of the influent and effluent from the Niagara Falls Sewage Disposal Plant. Chemical wastes from several industries enter this plant along with domestic sewage from the city of Niagara Falls, New York. Chemical wastes may contain compounds which are highly toxic to aquatic life. These compounds, when mixed with or under the influence of other non-toxic components of the effluent or receiving waters, may exert an entirely different toxicity from that of the pure compounds. Bio-assays were made to evaluate directly the toxicity of these chemically complex wastes which enter the Niagara River.
