Description The concentrations of metals in water and sediment samples collected from the Similkameen River during August 1995 were generally very low and not a water quality concern. Copper and arsenic concentrations were elevated in the sediments, but the significance of this finding is uncertain at present.
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.
