Contents Notes
Summarized data collected by the USGS that find a correlation between increasing and declining use of lead in gasoline and increasing and then decreasing concentrations of lead in reservoir sediments. Found that lead concentrations in sediments today remain approximately double the pre-lead in gasoline baseline, which the authors attribute to continued presence of legacy lead in urban environments.
