Description Sediment from 15 Puget Sound sites was collected during May 2001 and analyzed for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) using EPA methods 8082 and 1668a. This study was conducted to support efforts by the Washington State Department of Ecology and the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to compare PCB concentrations in sediment with PCB concentrations in muscle tissue of English sole (Plueronectes vetulus).
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
