Subject: GLI Toxicity Data Clearinghouse now available


Dear Cindy:

The GLI (Great Lakes Initiative) Toxicity Data Clearinghouse is now live and available for use by States, Tribes, and other interested parties.  The online Clearinghouse acts as a central location for toxicity data, exposure parameters and supporting documents used in the derivation of water quality criteria/standards in the Great Lakes Basin.  It is located at www.epa.gov/gliclearinghouse.

The Clearinghouse contains a searchable database of toxicity and exposure data relevant to the development of water quality criteria/standards.   In particular, Tribes and States can use the Clearinghouse to help derive criteria for pollutants without specific numeric criteria published in 40 CFR Part 132 of the Great Lakes Water Quality Guidance, including new pollutants that might be designated as a bioaccumulative chemical of concern.  

Please feel free to forward this email to other parties that you believe would be interested in the Clearinghouse.  Also, don't hesitate to call me at 312-353-6066, if you have any questions about the Clearinghouse.
