|Description||In 2014, the Department of Ecology surveyed sediment conditions throughout the Admiralty Inlet monitoring region and compared them to conditions from a similar survey in 1998 and 2002-2003 (Baseline) as part of a Puget Sound status and trends monitoring program. The study area included Port Townsend and the embayments within Admiralty Inlet.
Surface sediments (top 2-3 cm) from 43 randomly selected locations were analyzed to determine:
• Concentrations of potentially toxic chemical contaminants.
• Degree of response in laboratory tests of toxicity.
• Condition of sediment-dwelling invertebrates (benthos).
The sediment contaminant, toxicity, and benthic invertebrate data were rolled up into Ecology’s Chemistry, Toxicity, Benthic, and combined Triad Indices.
Appendices A – F are available in the Win Zip file above.
