This report includes both quantitative and qualitative descriptions of selected pesticicdes and PCB's in sediment, water-column water, and interfacial water samples from Chicago, Illinois; Green Bay, Wisconsin; Fall River, Massachusetts; Houston, Texas; and Memphis, Tennessee. The results of the study are particularly important in evaluating the water quality impacts of aquatic disposal of chlorinated hydrocarbon contaminated sediments. To assess these effects, regional information on the quality of dredged material, methods of disposal, and the nature of the aquatic media in they are disposed is needed. Other priority needs are described.
