Description Ecology’s effectiveness monitoring program will collect surface sediment as well as sediment cores in the Lucerne Basin in Lake Chelan to characterize the occurrence and temporal trends of metals. Sediment cores will be analyzed for metal concentrations to reconstruct historical deposition profiles in relation to historic mine activities and reclamation efforts in Railroad Creek. Sediment cores will be age dated using 210Pb techniques. In addition to core samples, surface sediment samples will be collected in order to quantify current metal concentrations in both shallow and deep water sediments.
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.
