Contents Notes
Presents data from monitoring metals concentrations in clams exposed to both discharge from the Palo Alto Regional Water Quality Control Plan and urban runoff from the Palo Alto, California area. Documents correlation between declining quantities of copper and silver in sewage treatment plant effluent and copper and silver concentrations in clams. Elevated concentrations of copper and silver prevented clam reproduction in the 1970's and 1980's; reproduction recovered as metal concentration declined. Inputs from urban runoff controlled zinc levels in the clams during the same time period.
