The US EPA-Chesapeake Bay Liaison Office developed and carried out a small scale sampling program to measure concentrations of tributyltin (TBT) and dibutyltin (DBT) at four selected harbor sites in Northern Chesapeake Bay. Beyond an initial peak in TBT concentrations at the beginning of the survey period, no significant upward or downward trend was observed over the boating season. A constant range of concentrations was observed after the initial peaks in May at the Annapolis and Solomons study sites. No initial peak in concentrations was observed at the Oxford study site. It is concluded that sources of TBT measured in the harbor areas are directly linked to local boating and marina activity.
