This document describes standard operating procedures for conducting pulsed exposure toxicity testing for evaluation of episodic andor ephemeral discharges such as those associated with stormwater runoff. These methods are slight modifications to existing whole effluent toxicity WET testing protocols designed for continuous flow discharges. Test methods included herein are the chronic toxicity test using the purple sea urchin Strongylocentrotus purpuratus and acute toxicity tests using mysid shrimp Americamysis bahia, water fleas Ceriodaphnia dubia and the freshwater amphipod Hyalella azteca.
