Abstract The report provides a synthesis of information describing the geographic extent and severity of chemical contamination in Elliott Bay within Puget Sound in Washington State. Summaries of existing data are provided for chemical contamination of sediment and biota, biological effects, contaminant sources, and beneficial uses associated with the estuarine study area. Original, summarized, tabulated, and mapped data are presented. The objective of the Data Summaries and Problem Identification report is to provide a mechanism for comprehensively evaluating pollution problems in the more urbanized embayments and for providing a basis for prioritizing corrective actions. A decision making framework is presented for evaluating and prioritizing both sub-areas and specific contaminant sources. The decision making framework includes: a review and quality assurance check of all available environmental data; analyses of spatial and temporal trends of chemical contamination; a limited ranking of the problem areas; and identification of data gaps and provision of recommendations for improved characterization of specific pollution sources.
