  1. Urban River Restoration: PCBs in the Neponset River

  2. Objectives • Measure water depths and sediment thickness in the Neponset River • Assess sediment quality in the Neponset River • Determine specific sources of polychlorinated biphenyls to sediment, water, and fish • Measure PCB concentrations in fish tissue samples

  20. Objectives • Define the monthly, seasonal, and annual load of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) from the Neponset River to Neponset River Estuary. • Determine the fate of PCBs in the Neponset River Estuary’s water, sediment, and fish. • Identify historical source of PCBs to the Neponset River and determine if that source is still continuing.
