Description During 1989 and 1990, Ecology’s Environmental Investigations and Laboratory Services Program purchased two flow-through centrifuges and installed them in an outfitted trailer. This self-contained "centrifuge system" has been used to collect suspended particles from NPDES-permitted waste-streams, rivers and storm water.

This paper summarizes the general success of efforts to collect, analyze and evaluate data from these particulate samples. Issues addressed include the resources (time and money) required to obtain samples and data, and special problems encountered in analyzing the particulate samples.
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.
