Description The Washington State Department of Ecology Toxics Cleanup Program (TCP) is responsible for identifying and remediating sites impacted by hazardous substances. In 2018 TCP commissioned a study that defined environmental effects–based concentrations for aquatic organisms exposed to total petroleum hydrocarbons. The goal of this follow-up study is to establish effects-based concentrations (no observed effect concentration and lowest observed effect concentration) for aquatic organisms in freshwater and marine waters contaminated with weathered diesel-range organics. This QAPP addendum details the recovery and screening of contaminated groundwater for use in the toxicity tests.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
