|Description||Elliott Bay sediment samples, collected in June 2013, were tested for the presence and concentrations of pharmaceuticals and personal care products (PPCPs) and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs).
Thirteen of the 119 PPCPs selected for analyses were detected. Most frequently occurring were triclocarban, an antibacterial agent; diphenhydramine, an antihistamine; and triamterene, a diuretic. Ten additional PPCPs, including antibiotics, calcium-channel blockers, an antidepressant, a stimulant, a bronchodilator, and an opiate, were detected less frequently. Of the 13 PFASs measured, perfluorooctane-sulfonate (PFOS), perfluorodecanoate (PFDA), and perfluoroundecanoate (PFUnA) were detected.
These data contribute to a growing baseline of information about the concentrations of PPCPs and PFASs in Puget Sound waters, biota, and various biotic endpoints and their sources, transport patterns, and fate.
