Description EPA priority pollutants/hazardous substances list compounds, resin acids, guaiacols, fatty acids, selected herbicides, polychlorinated dioxins, and polychlorinated furans were analyzed in sediment samples collected from ten sites in Grays Harbor estuary during May of 1988. The results indicated the level of chemical contamination was relatively low and generally comparable to non-urban reference ares in Puget Sound.
