Description Composite samples of sediment, whole largescale suckers (a bottom-feeding fish), and sport fish fillets were collected from five reaches of the Spokane River between Lake Coeur d'Alene and the Columbia River (Lake Roosevelt) during July-August 1993. The samples were analyzed for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and selected metals. The objective of this screening survey was to determine if levels of these contaminants were a significant environmental concern requiring more intensive sampling or other action.
