Description The ten metals addressed in the state’s surface water quality standards were analyzed by low-level methods in water collected from the mouths of Chambers Creek, Clover Creek, and Leach Creek in south Tacoma. Sampling was done on two occasions during summer low flow and once each during two fall runoff events in August - October, 1995. Zinc, copper, lead, and arsenic were routinely detectable, while nickel, cadmium, chromium, and mercury were almost exclusively detected during wet weather. The remaining metals, silver, and selenium, were never detected.
