There are two
acute MTBE toxicity tests that were conducted under
flow through test conditions. The organisms are sediment dwelling but
neither of those tests include sediment. The marine amphipod Hyalella
azteca seems to be more sensitive to MTBE than the Dipteran Chironomus
tentans (ENSR, 1999e; 1999f). Since these tests were not
carried out in presence of sediment, they can
only be considered as an extension to the data set for the other
freshwater invertebrates. The values are consistent with those reported
for the other freshwater species.
