Abstract:
Elevated concentrations of planar, halogenated hydrocarbons have been linked to reproductive problems in a variety of fish-eating birds and mammals in the Great Lakes and in particular Saginaw Bay. Currently, there are no accurate procedures to assess bioavailability of these contaminants. Polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans and mono- and non-ortho-chloro-substituted biphenyls in water at the femtogram to picogram per liter range were passively concentrated in semipermeable membrane devices (SPMDs) and these data were compared to the bioconcentration in co-exposed (caged) channel catfish. Sediment-derived water concentration estimates, calculated from a steady-state partitioning model, did not correlate well to those derived from either fish or SPMDs. The use of SPMDs demonstrated the utility of in-situ passive sampling over inference of water concentrations from accumulation in biota or partitioning with sediment. Residues accumulated by SPMDs have been shown to be proportional to analyte water concentration, whereas this does not appear to be the case for fish tissues. The greater amounts of 3,3', 4,4'-tetrachlorbiphenyl and 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzofuran accumulated in SPMDs than in exposed channel catfish indicated those non-passive aspects of bioconcentration in organisms, such as biotransformation and elimination, introduced 50-500% error in the assumed degree of exposure.
Purpose:
The objectives of this study were to compare the SPMD method of water sampling with sediment-based and fish biomonitoring-based methods. Resulting analyte concentrations in the three matrices were used to assess dioxin-like toxicity along the Saginaw River an to estimate water concentrations for comparison of the three methods. Several aspects of risk assessment were examined using SPMDs, sediment-partitioning modeling, and biomonitoring: (1) qualitative contaminant-class information provided by each method (similarities and differences in congener profiles), (2) quantitative contaminant data (including the toxic equivalency approach), and (3) estimation of water concentrations.

Methodology_Description:
The toxicologically active 2,3,7,8-substituted polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs) and polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs) and mono- and non-ortho-chloro-substituted PCBs (m-PCBs and , n-PCBs, respectively) that exhibit dioxin-like toxicity were specifically targeted for this study. Polychlorinated dibenzothiophenes (PCDTs) (Pruell, R.J. et al, 1993; Huntley et al, 1994) were also found and their concentrations estimated; there is currently little toxicological information concerning PCDTs, which are sulfur analogs fo PCDFs and may exhibit dioxin-like toxcity. Five sites along the Saginaw River were sampled: (1) the terminus of the Shiawassee River, (2) the terminusof the TittabawasseeRiver, (3) midway along the Saginaw near the Zilwaukee Bridge, (4) near the wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and industrial wastewater inlets at Middleground Island (buoy 26, where dredge spoils were previously disposed), and (5) downstream of Bay City.

Methodology_Description:
SPMDs (total mass 8.35 g each) were assembled from low-density polyethylene lay-flat tubing (2.5 cm width, 152 cm length, and 85 micrometers thickness) containing a thin film of triolein (1.64 g, purity 95%) and heat-sealed (Lebo et al, 1995). Each analytical sample, consisting of four SPMDs, was sealed in a new, hexane-rinsed, metal can and stored at -20 degrees C prior to field deployment.

Methodology_Description:
Channel catfish and sediment samples were column extracted with 300 mL of methylene chloride (Schmitt, 1990); SPMD samplers were dialyzed sequentially in two 500 mL volumes of n-hexane (solvent: SPMD ratio ~100:1, with dialytic recoveries > 90% (Lebo, 1995). The extracts or dialyzates were then treated by a two-stage reactive cleanup; sulfur in the sediment extracts was removed by copper treatment. The extracts were further purified using high performance gel permeation chromatography with methylene chloride mobile phase (Krahn, 1988), and the analytes of interest were then separated by high-performance carbon chromatography (Feltz, et al, 1995), isolating the m-PCB fraction, the n-PCB fraction, and the PCDDs and PCDFs as a single fraction. The PCDD-PCDF fractions were eluted through basic alumina to remove potential contaminants. Analytes were separated using capillary gas chromatography and determined by either electron capture for m-PCBs or high resolution isotope dilution mass spectrometry for n-PCBs, PCDDs, PCDFs, and PCDTs (Lebo et al, 1995; Feltz et al, 1995 and Peterman et al, 1996).
