ABSTRACT:
To evaluate the significance of ion imbalance toxicity and the extent of impacts to the aquatic community associated with surface water discharge of concentrate from membrane and ion exchange water treatment processes in coastal North Carolina, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service partnered with the North Carolina Division of Water Quality, the North Carolina Division of Marine Fisheries, and the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. This work was coordinated by Sara Ward (Ecologist / Environmental Contaminant Specialist) in the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Raleigh Field Office and was funded by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Environmental Contaminants Program (project number 200440003.1). Toxicity testing and analytical chemistry for the project was performed by EA Engineering, Science, and Technology, Inc. (Sparks, MD) and the North Carolina Division of Water Quality Laboratory Section (Raleigh, NC).
