The quality of sediments in the Fraser River Estuary was examined at six sites by measuring metals, chlorophenols, PCBs, PAHs, phthalate esters, and organochlorine pesticide concentrations. The purpose of the study was to obtain background information on the concentration of a number of metal and organic compounds in the sediments, to determine if sediments collected in 1989 following freshet were the same as those collected just prior to freshet in 1985 and 1987, and to determine if Water Quality Objectives were achieved.
