Evaluation of Waterfowl Consumption Advisories in the AOC

Purpose

Specifically, our project will evaluate the BUI “restrictions on fish and wildlife consumption” by monitoring waterfowl for contaminants at locations where consumption advisories already exist and determining whether contamination has decreased to the point where advisories are no longer warranted and the BUI can be removed from the given AOC.

Objective

Determine status of consumption advisories for waterfowl in AOC

Outcome

Updated consumption advisories and move closer to delisting AOC
