Description This is the first progress report on the Washington State Freshwater Sediment Criteria Project. The overall objectives of this project are to: 1) identify and evaluate efforts to develop freshwater sediment criteria outside of Washington State, 2) gather and evaluate data and procedures relating to bioassays, benthic infaunal surveys, and freshwater sediment contaminant levels, 3) conduct chemical and toxicological studies on Washington State freshwater sediments and 4) develop biological and/or numerical criteria to be applied to Washington freshwater sediments. This progress report covers the extent of these efforts through July 1990.
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.
