Abstract The volume includes the findings of a two-phase (laboratory and field) assessment of the potential use of biomarkers to evaluate the impact of the Refinery effluent on the York River. The study was jointly sponsored as a cooperative effort of Amoco Corporation and the United States Environmental Protection Agency. In the laboratory phase of the study, several of the biomarkers tested responded to various dilutions of process water effluent in an apparent dose-dependent manner. In the field study, however, there was little evidence that similar exposure is occurring in fish collected from the York River mainstream. The field data did suggest PAH exposure in fish collected from the stormwater settling pond and perhaps from the creek below the pond.
