National Summary
Biomonitoring is the term used to describe a broad category of monitoring methods used to test the toxicity of the wastestream flowing from wastewater treatment plants, streams, rivers, and other surface water. States are responsible for providing the water quality standards that individual discharges under authority of the Clean Water Act (CWA) (33 USC 1251 to 1387) must meet.
