Description This addendum to the 2018 Quality Assurance Monitoring Plan (QAMP) developed for the Puget Sound Sediment Monitoring Program (Sediment Program) provides details about changes to be implemented in 2021 to the Long-Term and Urban Bays elements of the program. Long-Term monitoring will continue to assess sediment and benthic invertebrate condition at 50 stations Puget Sound-wide, while Urban Bays monitoring will assess the condition at 36 stations in Elliott Bay. Information regarding leveraged sampling to be conducted for a number of regional and national partners is also provided.

Quality assurance elements not mentioned in this addendum remain unchanged for the Sediment Program and are as designated in the 2018 QAMP (Dutch et al., 2018).

New safety protocols to protect our sampling crew from COVID-19 transmission while conducting field work are also referenced in this addendum.
