From 1974 to 1980 the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency analyzed over 800 sediment samples from 550 stream sites throughout the State. This data file was analyzed to establish background levels and to identify areas of stream contamination. Data were further evaluated to determine sediment chemistry characteristics at: (1) varying distances downstream of municipal wastewater treatment facilities, and (2) sampling locations impacted by various point and non-point discharge types. Sediments were analyzed for nutrients, metals, and several pesticide and organochlorine compounds.
