|Description||Persistent, bioaccumulative, and toxic substances (PBTs) are considered the “worst of the worst” chemical contaminants because they remain in the environment for a long time, and build up within organisms and/or the food chain. The focus of our work on PBTs is preparing and implementing Chemical Action Plans. A Chemical Action Plan (CAP) is a plan that identifies, characterizes, and evaluates uses and releases of a specific persistent, bioaccumulative, toxic chemical (PBT) or a group of PBTs and recommends actions to protect human health and the environment (173-333 WAC).|
