    daphnids were removed, the F1 daphnids were old enough to be used for acute and chronic toxicity experiments. Acute Toxicity Study I carried out four 48 hour acute toxicity studies. I examined the effects of buffered and unbuffered gibberellic acid on Daphnia magna and Daphnia pulex. I used six different concentrations: 0 mg/L (control), 1 mg/L, 5 mg/L, 25 mg/L, 125 mg/L, and 625 mg/L. Gibberellic acid (99% purity, Chemservice, West Chester, PA) was dissolved in deionized water as it ionized into gibberellin and H+ ions. Buffered and unbuffered gibberellic acid 5000 mg/L stock solutions were used for spiking exposure jars. The buffered stock solutions were buffered with sodium bicarbonate until the solution reached a neutral pH. Glass jars were filled with moderately hard water and spiked with the appropriate amount of the gibberellic acid 5000 mg/L stock solution to total 100 mL. As an example, the 625 mg/L concentration had 12.5 mL of gibberellic acid 5000 mg/L stock solution and 87.5 mL of moderately hard water. The jars were allowed to equilibrate after being spiked. Control jars were set up similar to the 625 mg/L concentration except deionized water was used instead of the gibberellic acid 5000 mg/L stock solutions. Prior to placing the daphnids in the jars, pH and conductivity were recorded in two randomly chosen replicates from the highest concentration and the control in every acute toxicity study. For each experiment, there were three replicates for every…

    such as NCR had sufficient knowledge to be concerned about using a substance such as Aroclor 1242 in its CCP, especially in the absence of information about the toxicity of Aroclor 1242 at low environmental levels. For convenience, my conclusions are repeated here: 1. Citing the risk assessment paradigm and risk assessment methodology set forth by the National Academy of Sciences in 1983, Dr. Rodricks erroneously concludes that prior to it ceasing use of Aroclor 1242 in its CCP in 1971, NCR…
