Second Screening Investigation of Water and Sediment Quality of Creeks in Ten Washington Mining Districts, with Emphasis on Metals
Second Screening Investigation of Water and Sediment Quality of Creeks in Ten Washington Mining Districts, with Emphasis on Metals (Number of pages: 129) (Publication Size: 1MB)
|Raforth, R., D. Norman, and A. Johnson
|This study was designed to characterize water and sediment quality in streams that drain ten metals mining districts in Washington State. The districts were selected based on a preference for sites at high elevation, located in western Washington, or that had arsenic or mercury as primary or secondary minerals. The water quality emphasis for the study was the EPA ultra-clean sampling and low-level analysis methods for metals. General chemistry and field parameters were obtained concurrently with the metals and sediment samples. This study was similar in design to a study conducted by the same authors in 1997.
