Study Critique and Response

What happens when plain water is tested for toxicity using EPA's official methods? In a recent blind study, nearly 40% of such samples were erroneously reported to be toxic. A summary of the WET Method Blank Study, along with an interesting professional critique of the research design and conclusions, are available here.

The study was accepted for publication in SETAC's peer-reviewed journal Environmental Toxicology & Chemistry. The article appears in the Jan./Feb. of 2000 issue.
