To implement a Consent Decree between the EPA and the National Resources Defense Council requiring that EPA identify waters which may have toxic pollution problems, a two phase study was designed to determine if any Toxic Hot Spots exist in selected reaches of the South Platte River and selected tributary and non-tributary streams along the Front Range. Phase I was designed to determine if such 'Toxic Hot Spots' exist and Phase II would focus on those areas defined in Phase I as 'Toxic Hot Spots' and would include additional sampling locations. Samples of water, sediment and aquatic invertebrates were obtained for chemical and biological examination.
