This Bulletin provides an overview of the development and use of Ecotox Threshold (ET) benchmark values in Superfund ecological risk assessments (ERAs). ETs are defined as media-specific contaminant concentrations above which there is sufficient concern regarding adverse ecological effects to warrant further site investigation. The bulletin describes how ETs are to be used for screening purposes in the Superfund ERA process, and summarizes the methodologies used to calculate ETs for each medium.
