|Description||At many contaminated sites, the Department of Ecology’s Toxics Cleanup Program needs to establish surface water concentrations for petroleum contaminants that are protective of aquatic life in both the marine water and freshwater environments. Currently, there are no cleanup standards within state regulations that are based on dose-response relationships for total petroleum hydrocarbons (NWTPH). This study determined the chronic exposure toxicity on one fish species and one invertebrate species that represent both marine and freshwater aquatic ecosystems. Separate tests were carried out using the gasoline fraction (NWTPH-Gx) and the diesel fraction (NWTPH-Dx) to establish a dose-response relationship with each organism. Clear lethal and sublethal effects were observed for each organism.|
