Adult male fathead minnows (Pimephales promelas) were exposed to effluent from the City of Boulder, Colorado wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) under controlled conditions in the field to determine if the effluent induced reproductive disruption in fish. Gonadal intersex and other evidence of reproductive disruption were previously identified in white suckers (Catostomus commersoni) in Boulder Creek downstream from this WWTP effluent outfall. Fish were exposed within a mobile flow-through exposure laboratory in July 2005 and August 2006 to WWTP effluent (EFF), Boulder Creek water (REF), or mixtures of EFF and REF for up to 28 days. Primary (sperm abundance) and secondary (nuptial tubercles and dorsal fat pads) sex...

These data represent surface water and bed sediment samples analyzed for a variety of organic compounds. The samples were collected in streams and rivers in the Chesapeake Bay watershed from 2012-2018. Sites were located in Maryland, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Surface water samples were collected from 25 sites and analyzed for estrogenicity and an extensive suite of organic contaminants including hormones, pharmaceuticals, wastewater indicators, pesticides, phytoestrogens, and mycotoxins. Bed sediment samples were collected from 20 sites and analyzed for a suite of organic contaminants including hormones, wastewater indicators, pesticides, and organohalogens. Bed sediment was also analyzed for total organic...
