The report provides a synthesis of information describing the geographic extent and severity of estuarine contamination in the Lake Union and Ship Canal waterway within Puget Sound in Washington State. Summaries of existing data are provided for chemical contamination of water, sediment and biota. Analyses of spatial trends of both chemical and conventional pollution, biological effects, identification of data gaps, and provision of recommendations for improved characterization of specific pollution sources are included. Summarized, tabulated, and mapped data are presented. The objective of the Data Summary Report is to provide a mechanism for comprehensively evaluating pollution problems in this urbanized embayment and for providing a basis for prioritizing corrective actions.
