Description Effluent samples were collected from four seafood processing plants in southwest Washington in September 1988. Evaluation of the analytical data against federal guidelines was limited by the lack of plant discharge volume records. Effluent appeared to be meeting existing source federal guidelines, but were also significant sources of biochemical oxygen demand, total suspended solids, oil and grease, and nutrients to receiving waters. Adverse impacts on poorly flushed receiving water areas were suspected, but could not be established by receiving water data collected during the survey. Recommendations for improvement of permit data collection and records-keeping were made.
