Additional information

Short term effects on aquatic invertebrates ranged from 45 to 1376 mg B/L.

Equivalent concentrations of sodium pentaborate would be:

Anhydrous: 171 to 5220 mg/L,

Pentahydrate: 246 to 7511 mg/L.

These data support a conclusion that borates should not be classified as dangerous for the environment.
