PaHs in the aquatic environment of British Columbia / by C.L. Garrett and J.A. Shrimpton.: En40-240-1/00-02E-PDF

"This report summarizes information on polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds in the aquatic environment of British Columbia, obtained from select studies conducted by Environment Canada, Pacific and Yukon Region between 1984 and 1992. The information reflects studies conducted mainly in urban areas such as the Fraser River Estuary, Vancouver, Victoria and Esquimalt harbours, however, data for some other coastal regions and reference sites are also presented. This report also documents the existing information on the potential sources of PAH compounds and current environmental quality guidelines governing regulatory requirements. A general overview of the toxicity and environmental levels of these compounds in other areas of the world has been presented to provide a broader context for the British Columbia data"--Abstract, page i.
