In March 1984 EPA was informed by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) of the results of sediment and bioassay sampling that had been performed in Eagle Harbor. NOAA collected sediment samples from six locations in the harbor and performed a trawl for English sole at one of those points. The results of the NOAA study showed sediment levels of PNA as high as 300,000 ppb. Bioassays on the English sole taken showed that 85% had tumors. In addition to the findings discussed in the report, the Department of Ecology has analyzed clam and crab samples taken from the harbor to determine the extent of shellfish contamination. DOE and EPA have also conducted historical assessments of industrial activity in Eagle Harbor. The purpose of these assessments was to determine what sources might have contributed to the current level of pollution.
