Description The objective of these studies of toxic chemical loadings to Puget Sound is to develop information about the relative contributions from various sources to the toxic contaminant problems confronting the Puget Sound ecosystem. This information will then help guide decisions about how to most effectively direct resources to resolve toxic contamination issues (which sources or pathways should receive priority attention; or how much toxic reduction can be accomplished by sediment cleanup, by stormwater management, etc.).
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.
