Description A Class II Inspection was conducted at the Miller Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant in Seattle, Washington, on April 22-24, 1991. The effluent met NPDES permit requirements. Copper, silver, and mercury were found in 100 percent effluent at concentrations above the acute and chronic marine water quality criteria. No whole effluent toxicity was indicated by rainbow trout or fathead minnow bioassays. Seven volatile organic compounds and 12 priority pollutant metals were detected in plant sludge.
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.
