Description As part of continuing investigations of the Everett Harbor area, sediment from 17 sites along the southern shoreline of Port Gardner east of Mukilteo and Everett were sampled for priority pollutants (metals, volatile organics, semivolatile organics, and at 4 sites, PCBs). No priority pollutants were found at high concentrations and many sites had no detectable organic priority pollutants. These results suggest that no further work is necessary to evaluate potential contaminants in the study area.
