Human Health For the protection of human health from the toxic properties of cyanide ingested through water and through contaminated aquatic organisms, the ambient water quality criterion is.

The procedures described in the "Guidelines for Deriving Numerical National Water Quality Criteria for the Protection of Aquatic Organisms and Their Uses" indicate that, except possibly where a locally important species is very sensitive, saltwater aquatic organisms and their uses should not be affected unacceptably if the one-hoar average concentration of cyanide does not exceed ^Jg/L more than.

The USEPA’s ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for cyanide were developed in (USEPA a). Since then, concerns have arisen that the AWQC for cyanide have been problematic to implement and may not accurately reflect either the toxic forms or bioavailable concentrations of cyanide in water, sediments, and tissues of aquatic organisms.

The U.S. EPA’s current ambient water quality criteria (AWQC) for cyanide were developed in However, since new scientific information on cyanide toxicity and chemistry has been published, which suggested that the existing cyanide criteria should be reassessed.

This document provides guidance to States and Tribes authorized to adopt water quality standards under the Clean Water Act (CWA), to protect aquatic life from toxic effects of selenium. Under the CWA, States and Tribes are to adopt water quality criteria to protect designated uses.
