Dissolved Copper Concentrations in Two Puget Sound Marinas
Dissolved Copper Concentrations in Two Puget Sound Marinas (Number of pages: 35) (Publication Size: 609KB)
|Description||The Washington State Department of Ecology measured dissolved copper concentrations in surface water samples collected from two Puget Sound marinas in August 2006 and March 2007. Marinas have been shown to be sources of copper to the marine environment, the primary source being antifouling paints on boat hulls.
The results are used to characterize and compare copper concentrations inside and outside the marinas, assess seasonal variation, and determine compliance with Washington State water quality criteria for protection of marine life.
