Summary
Abstract: The semipermeable membrane device (SPMD) technology was employed to determine
the presence of bioavailable organochlorine pesticides (OCs), polychlorinated
biphenyls (PCBs), and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the water of the main
stem of the lower Missouri River and three of its tributaries. The SPMDs were
deployed in 1994 following the extensive flood of 1993. Specifically, the
SPMDs were deployed for 28 days at : Wilson State Park, IA; Nebraska City, NE;
Parkville, MO; the Kansas River in Kansas City, KS; Napoleon, MO; the Grand
River; Glasgov, MO; the Missouri River upstream from the confluence of the
Gasconade River; the Gasconade River, and Hermann, MO. Contaminant Residues
were found at all sites and at higher concentrations than found in the earlier
pre-flood sampling.

Purpose: To determine the presence of bioavailable organochlorine pesticides (OCs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the water of the main stem of the lower Missouri River and three of its tributaries.

Quality Field blank SPMDs (one for each of the 10 sample sites) accompanied the SPMD
sampler arrays and were open to the atmosphere during deployment and recovery.
These field blanks were processed and analyzed exactly as deployed SPMD
samplers. Laboratory procedural blanks, treated as samples, were also analyzed
with each sample set. Samples containing OC, ... View entire text
