Description This poster was presented at the 2011 Salish Sea Ecosystem Conference, October 25-27, 2011, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

A PPCP/PFC baseline has been established for sediments at 10 long-term stations and 1 major urban bay in Puget Sound. PPCPs/PFCs were detected in sediments from both urban and nonurban locations in limited numbers and at low levels. Environmental effects of PPCPs and PFCs in sediments are not well known. Further work is necessary to determine effects of chronic, low-level PPCP/PFC exposure on aquatic life. Similar PPCP/PFC baseline surveys are recommended for the other major urban bays in Puget Sound.
