BPA concentrations in fresh and salt water are on average lower than exposure levels at which adverse effects are to be expected according to the current environmental quality standards for aquatic organisms. However, BPA concentrations have been found in sediments at various locations in Europe that could have an adverse effect on soil organisms, according to the current environmental quality standards for benthic organisms.
The presence of BPA in the environment contributes very little to total exposure to BPA for consumers.
