Environmental Science Expert in Aquatic Toxicology
An environmental science expert was needed for litigation consulting on a case involving regulatory standards for agricultural chemicals. A study on the environmental impact of fertilizer runoff into freshwater streams was being examined by the USEPA. The results of the study were being considered as a factor in establishing water quality objectives by state agencies.
IMS ExpertServices was asked to locate an environmental science expert with experience in toxicology; more specifically, an extensive background in toxicology research as it relates to the study of freshwater fish. The expert was expected clarify environmental science research and opine on the appropriateness of its use by regulatory agencies for standard setting and under the Endangered Species Act (ESA).
