This technical report, compiled by Hatfield Consulting, describes the experimental design to determine the toxicity of OSPW treated using Syncrude's coke-slurry treatment process. The three primary components of the study design are: chemical characterization of untreated and treated OSPW; toxicological testing of treated OSPW; and assessment of aquatic invertebrate community mesocosm responses to treated OSPW.
