(2) The permittee shall perform 7-day chronic, static renewal, definitive (a control and five effluent concentrations) WET tests in accordance with Short-Term Methods for Estimating the Chronic Toxicity of Effluents and Receiving Water to Freshwater Organisms, (EPA/600/4-89/001) or Short-Term Methods for Estimating the Chronic Toxicity of Effluents and Receiving Waters to Marine and Estuarine Organisms, (EPA/600/4-87/028) or the most recent edition*. [WPC-1 Chapter Two Section VI] (i) Dilution water used for these tests shall consist of reagent grade water, defined as distilled or deionized water that does not contain substances which are toxic to the test organisms. For freshwater tests, dilution water shall consist of reagent grade chemicals or mineral water combined to make moderately hard dilution water according to Short-Term Methods for Estimating the chronic Toxicity of Effluents and Receiving Waters to Freshwater Organisms (EPA/600/4-89/001) or most recent edition*. For estuarine testing, dilution water shall consist of synthetic seawater or hypersaline brine combined to achieve a salinity of 20 parts per thousand according to Short-Term Methods for Estimating the Chronic Toxicity of Effluents and Receiving Waters to Marine and Estuarine Organisms (EPA/600/4-87/028) or most recent edition*.
