Description This draft report was posted for review purposes only.

The Department of Ecology conducted a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) assessment for PCBs in the Spokane River, during 2003-2004 Sampling included analysis of PCBs in river water, industrial and municipal effluents, stormwater, suspended particulate matter, bottom sediments, sediment cores, and fish tissue. The study area covered the Spokane River from the Idaho border (RM 96.1) to the mouth at the Columbia River, and the Little Spokane River.
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.
