Description This report contains information on the natural background concentrations of metals in surficial
soil throughout Washington State. The objective of this study was to define a range of values that represent the natural concentration of metals in surficial soils throughout Washington. The
results of this study represent the culmination of a seven-year effort by Ecology (Toxics Cleanup Program) and its co-sponsor, the USGS Water Resources Division (Tacoma Office).
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.
