Description The goal of this study is to evaluate the most appropriate and effective methods for measuring rubber-derived contaminants in water, sediment, and biota and their effects on aquatic life. Research is needed to understand the occurrence and persistence of 6PPD-quinone (6PPD-q) in salmon-bearing streams to help develop urban watershed solutions to protect salmon habitat. Direct and indirect methods are proposed to measure 6PPD-q and its effects on salmon-bearing streams. Direct methods include measuring 6PPD-q in water, sediments, sorbent media, and bioassays. Indirect methods use bioassessments to measure stream health. This project will guide future 6PPD-q studies and coordinate our research with natural resource management partners.
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.
