Description We measured concentrations of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (2,3,7,8-TCDD) and other polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurans (PCDDs/PCDFs) in suspended particulate matter (SPM) collected near the mouth of the Snake River during October 1996. The objective of this survey was to estimate the daily 2,3,7,8-TCDD load at the Snake River mouth under low-flow conditions and compare it to the target load for the Snake River watershed as described in EPA’s total maximum daily load (TMDL) for the Columbia River basin.
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.
