UV/H2O2 treatment can be part of the process converting surface water to drinking water, but would pose a potential problem when resulting in genotoxicity. This study investigates the genotoxicity of samples collected from the water treatment plant Andijk, applying UV/H2O2 treatment with an electrical energy dose of 0.54 kWh/m(3) and a H2O2 dose of 6 mg/l. Genotoxicity was tested in vitro using the Ames and Comet assay. All samples showed negative results. Samples were also tested in in vivo genotoxicity tests in Eastern mudminnow fish (Umbra pygmaea) by a sister chromatid exchange (SCE) and a Comet assay. No significant increases in SCEs were observed, but gill cells isolated from fish exposed to water obtained immediately after UV/H2O2 treatment and to Lake IJsselmeer water showed significantly increased DNA damage in the Comet assay. All other samples tested negative in this Comet assay. This indicates that DNA damaging compounds may result from the UV/H2O2 treatment, but also that these can be efficiently eliminated upon granular activated carbon (GAC) treatment of the water. It is concluded that when combined with this subsequent GAC treatment, UV/H2O2 treatment for the production of drinking water from surface water is not of concern with respect to genotoxicity.

surface waters - fish - exchanges - vitro
The production of drinking water from river water requires a certain minimal river water quality. The Association of River Rhine Water Works (RIWA), therefore, operates a monitoring network. In vitro mutagenicity studies have shown that the genotoxicity of the River Rhine water steadily decreased from 1981 until 2001. Compared to a study in 1978, a decrease in genotoxicity was also observed in an in vivo genotoxicity study in 2005, in which Eastern mudminnows (Umbra pygmaea) were exposed to River Rhine water, and gill cells were used for the Sister Chromatid Exchange (SCE) test and the Comet assay. In this 2005 study, the in vivo genotoxicity increased upon extending exposure of the fish from 3 to 11 days. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to investigate (i) whether new data corroborate that in vivo genotoxicity of River Rhine water is at present lower than in 1978, (ii) whether the Comet assay is a suitable alternative to the SCE assay, and (iii) whether further prolonged exposure results in a further increase in in vivo genotoxicity. The new data corroborate that in vivo genotoxicity of River Rhine water is at present lower than in 1978. The Comet assay is a useful addition but does not provide a substitute for the SCE endpoint in these in vivo genotoxicity studies. Prolonging the exposure time of Eastern mudminnows to River Rhine water from 11 to 42 days did not give a significant increase in SCEs and DNA damage (Comet assay) in gill cells. Mol. Mutagen. 2012.

Given the need for continued quality control of surface waters used for the production of drinking water by state-of-the-art bioassays and biological early warning systems, the objective of the present thesis was to validate and improve some of the bioassays and biological early warning systems used for quality control of surface water. Although there is a decline in the (geno)toxicity of surface waters over the years as observed for example for the water from the River Rhine over last decades, there is still a need for continued quality control. Due to the lower (geno)toxicity, bioassays with increased sensitivity are needed

Surface water used for drinking-water preparation requires continuous monitoring for the presence of toxic compounds. For monitoring of genotoxic compounds fish models have been developed, such as the Eastern mudminnow (Umbra pygmaea L.) because of its clearly visible 22 meta-centric chromosomes. It was demonstrated in the late seventies that Rhine water was able to induce chromosome aberrations and sister chromatid exchange in this fish species. Although in vitro mutagenicity studies of the RIWA (Rhine Water Works, The Netherlands) have shown that the genotoxicity of the river Rhine steadily decreased during the last decades, there is still concern about the presence of some residual mutagenicity. In addition, in most studies the water samples have been tested only in in vitro test systems such as the Salmonella-microsome test. For this reason, and in order to be able to make a comparison with the water quality 27 years ago, a study was performed with the same experimental design as before in order to measure the effect of Rhine water on the induction of SCE in the Eastern mudminnow. As a new test system the single cell gel electrophoresis assay (Comet assay) was performed. Fish were exposed to Rhine water or to groundwater for 3 and 11 days in flow-through aquaria. Fish exposed for 11 days to Rhine water had a significantly higher number of SCE and an increased comet tail-length compared with control fish exposed to groundwater. After exposure for three days to Rhine water there was no difference in SCE and a slightly increased comet tail-length compared with the control. It was concluded that genotoxins are still present in the river Rhine, but that the genotoxic potential has markedly decreased compared with 27 years ago. Furthermore, the Comet assay appears to be a sensitive assay to measure the genotoxic potential of surface waters in fish.

<p>This thesis describes the mechanism and the selectivity of food intake in bream ( <u>Abramis brama</u> ). It is a compilation of six articles which have been published (or will soon be published) in international journals.<p>In the first chapter, diets and feeding modes in cyprinid fishes are described, in order to determine the ecological position of bream within the cyprinids. The next step was to develop insight in the actual mechanism of the particle retention. X-ray movies of foraging bream, with marked gill-arches, showed too large inter-arch slits to retain small food-particles. From the 3-D architecture of the branchial sieve, a new model was derived. It assumes that particles are retained in channels on the gill-arches. The actual mesh-size of these channels can be adjusted by insertion of movable gill-rakers from the adjacent gill-arch. Distribution of retained particles in the channels and the path of ingested particles, traced with X-ray cinematography, supported the new model. Selectivity-curves, obtained from feeding-experiments, showed good correlation with curves expected from the model. It appeared that medium sized bream (ca. 20 cm) was able to feed with reduced or with unreduced channels, indicating that these fish are able to adjust its filter. Larger bream (>30 cm) foraged with reduced channels only. Two feeding modes have been observed in bream, particulate feeding (PF): in which individually located prey is attacked individually and filter-feeding (FF): an amount of water is filtered randomly. The switch from PF to FF depends on zooplankton density, swimming speed and buccal volume of the fish. It is assumed that bream switches to FF when zooplankton density andlor buccal volume becomes so large that each random snap will yield at least one prey-item. Consequently, small fish will remain particulate feeder at higher densities than larger fish. Retained particles are to be transported to the oesophagus at low risk for loss. It was found that small prey are enveloped in mucus for transport. Upto 900 zooplankters per bream have been observed in oropharyngeal mucus.
