Quality information l.jpg
QUALITY INFORMATION

  • Developed Quality Assurance Program Plan for trace level measurements.

  • Collected 10 years of unparalleled monitoring information for the Estuary.

  • Measured more than 61,000 water quality parameters for the Estuary.


Quality information23 l.jpg
QUALITY INFORMATION

  • Water and sediment in the Estuary meet cleanliness guidelines for most contaminants.

  • A few contaminants are found widespread.

  • PCBs, PAHs & mercury account for most of the guideline exceedances.


Quality information24 l.jpg
QUALITY INFORMATION

  • Water and sediment in the Estuary meet cleanliness guidelines for most contaminants.

  • Contaminants that commonly exceed their guideline include DDT, chlordane, arsenic, chromium, copper, mercury and nickel.
