Description A pilot study was undertaken to determine the concentrations of chlorinated pesticides, PCBs, and fecal coliform bacteria in stormwater from three storm drain outfalls in Pullman. The outfalls were sampled using grab samples during three winter storm events from December 2005 to April 2006.

PCBs, fecal coliform bacteria, and 4,4’-DDE were detected in all stormwater samples from Pullman storm drain outfalls. Dieldrin and heptachlor epoxide were detected in all but one stormwater sample. Many of the toxic compound detections were near the reporting limits. These detections and estimated loads will be considered in the upcoming TMDL (water cleanup plan) study.
