Waukegan Harbor in Illinois was designed as a Great Lakes Area of Concern due to high sediment concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). The objective of this study was to evaluate sediment toxicity of 20 samples collected after remediation (primarily dredging) of Waukegan Harbor for PCBs.
