This report describes the Long-Term Monitoring (LTM) Plan designed to assess the effectiveness of remedial activities at the New Bedford Harbor (NBH) Superfund site in New Bedford, MA. Included in this report are an historical overview detailing man's impacts on the harbor, the long-term plan for monitoring the remediation of the harbor, and the initial data set collected prior to remediation to establish the current harbor conditions. This baseline data set includes measurements of sediment physical characteristics, chemical concentrations, and biological responses, such as benthic community analysis and sediment toxicity. In addition, data are presented describing PCB bioaccumulation in blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) and mummichogs (Fundulus heteroclitus).
