Hudson River Trustees Release Report for PCB Dosing Solutions for Avian Egg

Date Posted: September 14, 2011

Preparation of Individual and Custom PCB Mixture Dosing Solutions for Avian Egg Injection Studies Associated with Injury Determinations under the Hudson River NRDA

The Hudson River Natural Resource Trustees announce the release of the document, "Preparation of Individual and Custom PCB Mixture Dosing Solutions for Avian Egg Injection Studies Associated with Injury Determinations under the Hudson River NRDA." This report addresses the preparation of dosing solutions used in the Trustees’ avian egg injection studies in years subsequent to 2006, including dosing solutions of PCB 77, PCB 126, the spotted sandpiper PCB mixture and the tree swallow PCB mixture. Past and continuing discharges of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) have contaminated the natural resources of the Hudson River. The Hudson River Natural Resource Trustees -- New York State, the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the U.S. Department of the Interior -- are conducting a natural resource damage assessment (NRDA) to assess and restore those natural resources injured by PCBs. As part of the Hudson River NRDA, the Trustees are conducting an avian egg injection study. This report provides the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) report on the preparation of dosing solutions used in the Trustees' avian egg injection studies as noted above.
