UK Direct Toxicity Assessment (DTA) Demonstration Programme Lower Tees EstuaryDemonstration Project ? Part I

Price: £24  

As part of a trial of a DTA approach in the UK a case study was study carried out on a 5.5 km reach of the Lower Tees estuary, a location where there was a history of poor receiving water quality. The project was designed to evaluate selected elements of a proposed DTA protocol, short- term (largely lethal) ecotoxicity tests and associated procedures for effluent control in an estuarine/ marine catchment. The results showed that a number of discharges to the estuary showed evidence of short- term (largely lethal) ecotoxicity and that the test methods used could also detect varying levels of effects in receiving water samples taken in discharge plumes. The learning points and recommendations from the case study will be used in the development of Technical Guidance.
