St. Lawrence River trace organic contaminants study (part III), 1987 / M.E. Comba [and three others].: En13-5/90-01E-PDF

"Polychlorinated biphenyls and selected organochlorine hydrocarbons were measured in suspended particulates and centrifuged water of the St. Lawrence River during June/July 1987. These measurements are part of a project on contaminant behaviour and transport in the St. Lawrence River and its upper estuary receiving waters. Ten localized areas of impaired water quality were previously identified. The suspended particulate phase of the St. Lawrence River transports polychlorinated biphenyls and mirex from Lake Ontario to Quebec City. Annual flux estimates for the studied organochlorine compounds are given"--Abstract.
