|Description||The Washington State Department of Ecology conducted a screening-level survey of contaminants in the Lake Whatcom and Whatcom Creek watersheds during 1998. Sampling included water collected from six streams or storm drains during spring and fall rainstorms; sediments from the same six stream/storm drain sites as well as from three sites in Lake Whatcom; and tissues from several species of fish found in Lake Whatcom and Whatcom Creek. Sites were assessed for a variety of contaminants including fecal coliform bacteria, nutrients, metals, total petroleum hydrocarbons, semivolatile organics (PAHs, phthalates, phenols), pesticides, and PCBs.|
