Description In-line sediment traps were deployed between December 1997 and April 1998 in several stormwater discharges to Thea Foss Waterway, located in Commencement Bay, Tacoma, Washington. The primary objective of this investigation was to determine contaminant concentrations associated with suspended particulate matter (SPM) entering the waterway. These data were obtained to supplement and compare to monitoring results collected in 1997. The overall goal of the project is to evaluate source control efforts and determine the potential for recontamination of bottom sediments in Thea Foss Waterway.
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.
