The report is one component of an urban Bay action program. The program identifies existing problems of toxic contamination and associated biological effects within the study area, identifies historic and ongoing sources of pollution, and identifies appropriate remedial actions and agency responsibilities for implementing defined corrective actions. The objective of the report is to provide the design for a sampling effort which will fill specific data and information gaps. This step was identified as being necessary for completing the interagency action plan. Specific components of the report include objectives for a sediment quality survey and biological effects studies (including bioassays, benthic invertebrate communities, bioaccumulation, and fish pathology), identification of sample variables, sampling methods, and laboratory analyses.
