Biotesting wastewater for hazard evaluation.
Evaluation of the potential hazard of treated water can be performed in two basic ways: chemical identification followed by chemical-by-chemical hazard summation or by means of biotesting the water as if the contaminants were a single compound.
Current practice is somewhere in between.
For the most part, the use of bioassays is limited to a single test system, and the results are usually interpreted as either positive or negative.
That is, binary information is the usual result of a bioassay evaluation.
Our work over the past decade has facilitated the development of an alternative approach to interpreting bioassay results.
The key element in our approach is the use of relative comparisons.
