Abstract

This is the second Annual Report of the Regional Monitoring Program for Trace Substances (RMP). It describes concentrations of pollutants in water, sediment, and tissue samples of oysters, mussels, and clams at 15 to 24 sampling locations for three discrete sampling events - during the wet season in February, in April during a period of declining Delta outflows, and during the dry season in August. The sampling stations are located throughout the Estuary and at the major tributaries including the mouths of the Guadalupe River and Coyote Creek in the extreme southern portions of the Estuary to the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers (Figure 1). In 1994, water samples were also taken at two upstream locations at Rio Vista (Sacramento River) and Manteca (San Joaquin River) to determine river contaminant concentrations during a six-week period in spring.
