Description Newer data indicate the EPA water quality criteria for acrolein of 68 ug/L acute and 21 ug/L chronic are not protective of aquatic life. EPA guidelines were used to calculate a Criterion Maximum Concentration of 3 ug/L from more recent data. Conclusions of an industry-sponsored study of acrolein applications to Washington state irrigation canals that treated waters can be safely released after 48 hours do not appear supportable.
