Two areas of environmental interest for creosote are discussed. Creosote treated wood piling and bulkhead materials as used in waterfront structures do not show, at this time, any potential hazard to the environment. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicated that bird and fish toxicity data would be necessary to assist in the monitoring of an accidental creosote spill situation. Data are given for the eight-day dietary feeding study with bobwhite quail and mallard duck; and for a fish bioassay using bluegill, goldfish and rainbow trout. Plates and tables illustrate data.
