Barnacle-covered Radiator

A rusty radiator and other debris are found at low tide along the Duwamish River in Seattle. Sediments (mud and sand on the river bottom) in and along the river contain a wide range of pollution from years of industrial activity and stormwater runoff. Contaminants include polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), mercury and other metals, and phthalates. Visit www.epa.gov/region10/duwamish to learn more about EPA's efforts to clean up and restore the lower Duwamish River.
