The report compiles and interprets information on potential environmental degradation from toxic chemical contaminants in non-urban areas within Puget Sound. Prior to the publication, information on toxic contaminants in the areas of concern was scattered among numerous locations in forms not readily usable. The objectives of the study were (1) to identify, by interpreting existing information, non-urban areas in Puget Sound that may have serious contamination or biological problems, and (2) to prioritize those areas for future detailed studies. Of the 97 non-urban areas of Puget Sound evaluated in the study by the Environmental Assessment Matrix technique, only 6 received a ranking of HIGH which may qualify them for consideration as sites for future, detailed investigations. The areas of significant concern are: the Guemes/Fidalgo Channel, Port Angeles Harbor, Crescent Harbor, Richmond Beach, Liberty Bay, and East Passage.
