SOURCE IDENTIFICATION AND SOURCE CONTROL 9 TYPES OF SOURCES 9 AGENCY . Author(s) Norton, D. Description: In-line sediment traps were successfully deployed between September and January in three major stormwater discharges to Thea Foss Waterway (Foss Waterway) located in Commencement Bay, Tacoma, Washington. River derived fine surface sediment along the shoreline of Commencement Bay was 77 percent. This finding, in combination with higher concentrations of organic contaminants in marine rather than river sediment, indicates that riverborne sediment-bound contaminants are retained in shallow marine habitats of Commencement : Renee K.

As part of Ecology’s Urban Bays monitoring program, Commencement Bay surface sediments were sampled in , , and Sediment condition was evaluated with calculated indices based on results of laboratory analyses. In , a cooperative agreement was forged between the PSAMP Sediment Component and NOAA's National Status and Trends (NS&T) Program to conduct sediment sampling in .

EPA’s summary of tier 1 sediment remediation sites with pre-monitoring and post-monitoring data (S. Ells, EPA, unpublished information, Ma ) presented during the committee’s first meeting indicates that the baseline average concentration of PCBs in surface sediment (no depth specified) at the hot spot mg/kg and lists a.

Historically, sediment quality assessment has been an important feature of many California monitoring programs. It was a major focus in the Bay Protection and Toxic Cleanup Program (BPTCP; Anderson et al. ), the California Environmental Mapping and Assessment Program (EMAP; USEPA ), the San Francisco Regional Monitoring Program (SFEI ). The toxicity of sediment samples from Commencement Bay, Washington, was measured by the survival of marine infaunal amphipods (Rhepoxynius abronius) during ten-day exposure to test sediment.
