The purpose of this report is to present the analytical results of the organic and inorganic findings from 103 sediment survey sites. The Buffalo New York area contained within the survey is a heavily contaminated area. Almost all of the 66 sites analyzed contained sediments which exceeded USEPA-Region V classification of heavily polluted for conventional contaminants and/or metals. Insufficient benthic living organisms were found in any of the sediments collected to permit analysis for contaminants.
Final. Distributed to depository libraries in microfiche. "April 1984." Includes bibliographical references (pages 30-31 (2nd group)). "EPA 905/3-84-001"--Cover.
