Description Earthworm bioassays are a widely recognized tool for evaluating the toxicity of contaminated soils. The earthworm bioassay described in this document is intended to be used in screening level assessments of soil toxicity at hazardous waste sites being investigated under the Washington Model Toxics Control Act Cleanup Regulation.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
