The Albemarle-Pamlico (A/P) estuarine system is one of 17 estuaries identified nationwide under EPA's National Estuary Program. This report presents the results of a project to analyze multimedia toxics data from the system, one of several efforts by Research Triangle Institute (RTI) to support watershed planning in the A/P Study Area. The main purposes of this project were to: analyze toxics information from diverse agencies and databases in a consistent manner; estimate annual toxics loadings from point sources in the A/P basins and predict the potential for exceedances of water quality standards due to these sources; compare ambient water column, sediment, and fish tissue data to the most appropriate standards or criteria available to identify areas of concern where these standards or criteria are exceeded; and use Geographic Information System (GIS) technology to display the above results in graphical (map) form for further analysis and action by State agencies.
