|Description||As part of the Department of Ecology’s Urban Bay Monitoring program, Bainbridge Basin surface sediments were sampled in 1998, 2009, and again in 2015. Sediment condition was evaluated with calculated indices based on results of laboratory analyses.
Overall sediment quality in the Bainbridge Basin has declined since first evaluated by the Sediment Monitoring Program in 1998. Three of the four calculated indices measuring sediment condition significantly declined over the 17-year period, 1998-2015. Only the Chemistry Index stayed the same and surpassed ecosystem recovery target values.
