This project was designed to evaluate the current status of sediments in the UMR by: (1) measuring the concentrations of contaminants in sediments of the UMR, (2) evaluating the toxicity of sediments collected from the river, (3) determining the bioaccumulation of contaminants from UMR sediments using field-collected and laboratory exposured oligochaetes, and (4) determining the benthic community structure in fine-grain sediments within the river.
