Toxic Pollution in Casco Bay: Sources and Impacts

Abstract: 

This report complements and expands upon the information in the 2005 Casco Bay Estuary Partnership report, <i>State of the Bay</i>. This current report, <i>Toxic Pollution in Casco Bay</i>, details studies undertaken by Casco Bay Estuary Partnership (CBEP) and others on some of the sources of toxic chemicals entering the Bay and its watershed, on the impacts of toxic chemicals on Casco Bay wildlife, and on potential risks to human consumers of fish and shellfish. The report does not, however, address groundwater pollution and drinking water issues. The report conludes with ways that CBEP and partner organizations are working to reduce the loading of toxic chemicals to the Bay and its watershed.
