“The primary purpose of the Milwaukee River PCB Mass Balance Study was to consider the effects of present and future sediment remediation on water column PCB concentrations and PCB mass export in both Cedar creek and the Milwaukee River. This report presents a summary of water column and sediment data, documents mathematical model development and gives predictions on various remediation scenarios” p6
