Description This report summarizes results from the eleventh year of a long-term study to evaluate contaminant trends in age-dated lake sediment cores across the state. In 2016, Ecology collected sediment cores from Deep Lake, Spanaway Lake, and Lake Spokane. Core samples were analyzed for up to 209 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners.
