    By Jeffrey H. Tepper, Geology Department, University of Puget Sound Introduction. The sediment on the bottom of a lake exerts an important influence on water quality and aquatic life. For example, sediment may function as a sink and/or a source for nutrients, heavy metals, and other pollutants, and it is home to benthic organisms.   Data from toxicity tests of the pore water extracted from Puget Sound sediments were compiled from surveys conducted from to Tests were performed on samples collected throughout all of the eight monitoring regions in the Sound, an area encompassing 2, km2. Tests were performed with the gametes of the Pacific purple sea urchin, Strongylocentrotus purpuratus, to Author: Edward R. Long, R. Scott Carr, James M. Biedenbach, Sandra Weakland, Valerie Partridge, Margaret Dut.

    The approach was adopted for long‐term status and trends sediment monitoring in Puget Sound with the inception of the PSEMP sediment component in (Puget Sound Water Quality Authority ). The SQT methods that were initially developed for classifying relative sediment quality relied on binary, presence‐absence criteria for the Cited by: 7.

Sediment Quality Assessment of Puget Sound’s Hood Canal Region, A sediment quality survey was conducted in Hood Canal in by the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) as part of the Puget Sound Assessment and Monitoring Program (PSAMP).

The goal of this survey was to evaluate the quality of sediments throughout the Hood. We're cleaning up contaminated sediment along coastlines, embayments, estuaries, and rivers.

What is sediment. Sediment is where aquatic animals such as crabs and clams live. Sediment can include silt, sand, cobble, and beaches. Why does sediment matter. Clean sediment improves the health of marine. Land Use Affects Water Quality and Stream Habitat. Nearly 4 million people, or about 70 percent of Washington State’s population, live in the Puget Sound Basin.

Urban growth is rapid; bythe population is expected to increase by million people, with most growth in urban and suburban areas.

The marine habitat of Puget Sound can be divided up into nearshore, benthic (associated with the sea floor), and pelagic (open water) habitats. This article focuses on the pelagic habitat within the Puget Sound. This article was prepared as part of the Puget Sound Fact Book produced by the University of Washington Puget Sound Institute.

The report, “Sediment Quality in Central Puget Sound, Changes Over a Ten-Year Period,” compared sediment samples the state program collected in and to samples it collected in and Ecology’s data and documentation can be found on Ecology’s marine sediment monitoring website.

A survey was designed and conducted to determine the severity, spatial patterns, and spatial extent of degraded sediment quality in Puget Sound (Washington State, USA).

A weight of evidence compiled from results of chemical analyses, toxicity tests, and benthic infaunal analyses was used to classify the quality of sediments.
