Description The Spokane River has the highest known PCB levels among Washington State rivers, lakes, and streams. In this report, the data on PCB concentrations in Spokane River fish, sediment, and water are summarized and reviewed, and an assessment is made of the ecological hazard for the river’s aquatic life and fish-eating wildlife.
