||A toxicity identification evaluation (TIE) was performed on a muncipal effluent, and three toxicants were identified, ammonia, chlorine, and diazinon. The report illustrates the types of data and logic used in performing a TIE which contains common municipal toxicants. Emphasis in this report was place on the data needed for generating the 'weight of evidence' in toxicant confirmation. Phase III, to support the suspect toxicants identified in the TIE process. Multiple Phase III manipulations, when applied to numerous effluent samples, provided consistent results for generating the 'weight of evidence' for the confirmation of ammonia and chlorine as the primary causes of toxicity of this effluent.
