BACKGROUND: Tributyltin (TBT) is a highly toxic. binding water quality standards. Criteria in water quality standards establish the maximum acceptable pollutant concentrations in ambient waters protective of the state’s designated uses.

States may adopt water quality criteria in their water quality standards that have the same numerical values as EPA’s recommended section (a)(1) criteria.

This final document is guidance only. It does not establish or affect legal rights or obligations. Nonylphenol is a toxic breakdown product of nonylphenol ethoxylate (NPE) surfactants. NPE surfactants are used in industrial cleaning applications and pesticide formulations. EPA published a draft ambient water quality criteria document for nonylphenol in January This document contains ambient water quality criteria for the protection of aquatic organisms and their uses.

Water quality criteria adopted in state or tribal water quality standards could have the same numerical values as criteria developed under section However, in many situations states or tribes might want to adjust water quality criteria developed under section to reflect local environmental conditions and human exposure patterns.

Copies of the criteria document entitled, Aquatic Life Ambient Freshwater Quality Criteria—Copper Revision (EPAR) may be obtained from EPA's Water Resource Center by phone at ()or by e-mail to [email protected] or by conventional mail to: U.S. EPA Water Resource Center, T, Pennsylvania.

Under the Clean Water Act and its implementing regulations, states and authorized tribes are to adopt water quality criteria to protect designated uses (e.g., aquatic life, recreational use).

EPA's water quality criteria recommendations are not regulations. Thus, EPA's recommended criteria do not constitute legally binding requirements. the updated freshwater criteria derivations in this document are still based on the principles set forth in the Guidelines for Deriving Numerical Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Aquatic Life and Their Uses (Stephan et al.hereafter referred to as the Guidelines).

Section 2 of this. commonly called “tributyltin sulfide” were used in the derivation of the water quality criteria concentrations for aquatic life presented herein.

All concentrations from such tests are expressed as TBT, not as tin and not as the chemical Size: KB.
