Identify Impaired Waters
Monitor Water Quality or Sediment
Multiple sediment cores will be collected along several transects and visually examined to determine the distribution, depth and thickness of the contaminated layer. Representative cores will be saved for analysis. A three site composite of the contaminated layer will be developed for high, medium, and low areas of visually evident contamination. An additional composited sample will be developed for the overlying sediment layer from locations where it is less than 6 inches deep. A total of 4 samples will be analyzed.
