Abstract The objective of the study was to evaluate an organic carbon partitioning model for predicting bioavailability of the organophosphate chlorpyrifos in sediments, in support of the development of a sediment-quality criterion for the pesticide. Initial 10-d water-only toxicity tests were conducted with the midge Chironomus tentans to define the sensitivity of this species to chlorpyrifos. Ten-day toxicity tests with Chironomus tentans were conducted with the spiked sediments under conditions similar to those in the water-only exposure. Based on predicted pore-water concentrations of chlorpyrifos, results of the water-only and sediment tests were in close agreement. Overall, these results suggest that within the range of organic carbon tested in the present study, an equilibrium partitioning model was based on organic carbon is appropriate for predicting the bioavailability of sediment-associated chlorpyrifos to benthic invertebrates.
