Perfluorinated Compounds in Washington Rivers and Lakes
Perfluorinated Compounds in Washington Rivers and Lakes (Number of pages: 93) (Publication Size: 1MB)
|Author(s)||Furl, C. and C. Meredith|
|Description||The study represents an exploratory effort seeking information on 13 perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) statewide in surface waters, wastewater treatment plant effluents, and fish tissues. Surface water and effluent samples were collected during periods of low and high flows. Additionally, PFC concentrations were measured from 11 osprey eggs from the Lower Columbia River.
Generally speaking, total PFC concentrations in all matrices recorded as part of the study were within or below the range of values recorded at other United States locations. The maximum osprey egg concentration (910 ng/g) was the second highest recorded value for that medium.
