The ability of whole effluent toxicity (WET) tests to predict in-stream .

The ability of whole effluent toxicity (WET) tests to predict in-stream effects to periphyton, benthic macroinvertebrates, and fish in a habitat-impaired stream was assessed. Overall, in-stream biological conditions confirmed the absence of water quality-related effects as predicted by WET tests. Do you want to read the rest of this article? Request full-text.

ABSTRACT The types and quality of data needed to determine relationships between chronic whole effluent toxicity (WET) test results and in-stream biological condition were evaluated using information collected over a . -y period from 6 different sites across the United States. Algae tests often indicated the most effluent toxicity in this study; however, this test was most susceptible to false positives and high interlaboratory variability.

This project evaluated the quality of data needed to determine relationships between chronic Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) test results and in-stream biological condition. A data quality objectives approach was used, which included several proposed measurement quality objectives (MQOs) that specified desired precision, bias, and sensitivity of methods used. Six facilities This project evaluated the quality of data needed to determine relationships between chronic Whole Effluent Toxicity (WET) test results and in-stream biological condition

study (4 eastern and 2 western United States) all had design effluent concentrations 60% of the stream flow.

Comparison of whole effluent chronic toxicity to receiving stream ecological conditions. Short-term whole effluent toxicity testing, which is currently a requirement of the . Conference Smith, . EPA& National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), commonly uses the cladoceran species Ceriodaphnia dubia. Despite the advantages to using a common test species to model the toxic effects of effluents, it could be argued that toxicity test results would be more meaningful if a wider variety of test organisms were commonly used.

Whole effluent toxicity (WET) tests are a critical component of Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System .

Whole effluent toxicity (WET) tests are a critical component of Wisconsin Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permits. The primary goal of WET testing is to ensure that wastewater effluent discharged into Wisconsin surface waters do not negatively impact aquatic ecosystems. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) typically incorporates a WET limit into a WPDES permit when wastewater effluent has impacted or has the potential to impact the aquatic environment. By determining the need for a WET limit, the WDNR is able to maintain strict control over wastewater quality.

Most of these studies were conducted using freshwater species.
