Abstract:
The Department of Ecology (WDOE) conducted a sampling of suspended particulate matter (SPM) from the Columbia River at Northport as part of an investigation into the impact on Lake Roosevelt of discharges from the Celgar bleached kraft pulp mill in Castlegar, B.C (Johnson et al. 1991). The objectives of this study were to make the first determination of PCDD/PCDF concentrations in Columbia River water, obtain a preliminary estimate of loads to Lake Roosevelt and provide data to the Water Quality Program and EPA to assist in refinement of the Columbia River total maximum daily load for 2,3,7,8-TCDD. The field work was conducted with an extensive Environment Canada study of water quality in the border reach of the Columbia River which included SPM samples for PCDDs/PCDFs. The area of study was Columbia River-U.S./Canadian border with sampling done in Northport. The centrifuges were operated simultaneously over a period of approximately 57 hours starting at 2315 hour on October 9 and ending at 0836 on October 12th. Flow rate was 1.2 gallons/minute with a total of 4.082 gallons of water passing through the centrifuge. Target analytes included 17 congeners of dioxins and furans. Analytical techniques included Dioxins and furans (EPA Method 8290). Data are reported in dry weight. Total dioxin and furan concentrations were determined by the laboratory as the sum of the individual congeners that were detected. The information for this metadata was taken from the Columbia River Basin: Sediment Database Abstracts.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
QA measures included matrix spikes and centrifuge blanks. The laboratory data were reviewed and data qualifiers were added as appropriate. However, the only data qualifier that could be defined was "U" - Not detected. The "B" qualifier indicated that the analyte was also detected in the laboratory blank sample. Value is the detection limit. The qualifier code "F" was not defined. Analyses with these qualifier codes were reported by Alta Laboratory. Users of these data should be aware that they are from only one sampling area. All data entered in the database were reviewed for data entry errors. All detected errors were corrected.
