Description In November 1993, the Environmental Investigations and Laboratory Services Program at Ecology was asked to review existing Thea Foss storm drain data. Most of these data were generated by the city of Tacoma during a 1987-1989 study of water quality in Foss (then called City Waterway) and other areas of inner Commencement Bay. The objectives of this review are to: 1) provide staff of the Commencement Bay Urban Bay Action Team an evaluation of the usefulness of these data in efforts to identify contaminant sources, and 2) make recommendations on actions to better identify sources of contaminants in Foss storm drains.
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.
