Description Sediment and fish from Dillenbaugh Creek and the Chehalis River, near the American Crossarm and Conduit Superfund Cleanup site, were analyzed for polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDD/PCDFs). PCDD/PCDFs in sediments and fish tissue downstream of the ACC site were significantly higher than background concentrations. PCDD/PCDFs in Dillenbaugh Creek sediments near the ACC were of concern for aquatic life and wildlife protection. PCDD/PCDFs in fish tissue from both Dillenbaugh Creek and the Chehalis River were of concern for human health protection, based on the National Toxics Rule fish tissue criterion and the 2000 EPA screening values for recreational and subsistence fishers.
