ABSTRACT:
In 1999, the Chesapeake Bay Program Toxics Subcommittee characterized the tidal tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay for their potential for adverse effects due to chemical contamination. One finding was that, due to a paucity of data, many segments were characterized as "areas with insufficient or inconclusive data."
