Abstract: The objectives of the study were 1) to examine selected near-shore and wetland locations in the Canadian Great Lakes Basin, and agricultural sources of sediments contaminated by toxic agricultural chemicals (esp. pesticides)2) estimate the quantity of chemicals present3) evaluate their bioavailability and impact on wetland ecologyand 4) identify the options for remedial action. This report summarizes some of the data collected during the life of the study. Unfortunately, it is not possible to include all of the detailed data on sediment quality until the authors have had some time to interpret the results. A separate report is being prepared on sediments that were sampled from the areas studied. Additional scientific papers and presentations will be prepared by the authors to communicate the results of our study.
