Description Copper, zinc, nickel, lead, cadmium, silver, arsenic, chromium, mercury, and selenium were analyzed in water and sediment samples collected from four sites in the Similkameen River during low flow in August 1995 and spring runoff in April 1996. Data on general water quality, as well as iron, aluminum, manganese, and grain size in the sediments, were also obtained.
