This report describes the monitoring program conducted after a spill of 255 gallons of transformer fluid, Aroclor 1242, occurred in the Duwamish River in Seattle, Washington . A detailed evaluation is presented of data acquired prior to, during, and after recovery operations. An initial recovery effort conducted by EPA resulted in a 30 percent removal of the PCB. The Dept. of Defense, acting through the Corps of Engineers, removed the remaining Aroclor using a Pneuma dredge. This removal operation increased the total PCB recovered to approximately 92 percent. The release of pollutants from sediments during dredging could be only partially predicted by use of the elutriate test and evaluation of the interstitial water.
