Description The purpose of this memo is to update key graphics and findings from the previously published Puget Sound box model of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The box model was revisited to consider recently revised loading estimates. The revised loads slightly reduce the magnitude and uncertainty in the predicted mass of PCBs in Puget Sound compared with previous loading estimates. The conclusions of the original report are not significantly affected by the updated PCB loading estimates.
