Description

The Casco Bay Estuary Partnership (CBEP) has funded three comprehensive sediment quality assessments throughout Casco Bay since 1991, at roughly ten-year intervals. Chemicals analyzed include metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), organochlorine pesticides, dioxins and furans, and organotins. This report summarizes the results from the most recent sediment sampling program conducted in 2010-2011 and describes how concentrations of chemicals in sediment have changed over the 20-year period since samples were originally collected.
