|Description||Bellingham Bay is the location of a multi-organization, comprehensive cleanup initiative know as the Bellingham Bay Demonstration Pilot. In early 2013, Ecology revised its Sediment Management Standards to establish a new framework for identification and cleanup of contaminated sediment sites (Washington Administrative Code 173-204). A key component of this framework was the concept of regional background sediment concentrations, which could potentially serve as the Cleanup Screening Level for sediment sites. This final report includes a summary of the data and regional background values for select chemicals.
