Summary
Abstract: Adapted from the introduction INVENTORY OF DDT IN SEDIMENTS by Deirdre
J. McDermott and Theadore C. Heesen

DDT is one of the most important of the known contaminants of southern
California waters. Therefore, in 1972 and 1973, the Southern
California Coastal Water Research Project (SCCWRP) conducted a
detailed investigation into the quantity and character of DDT residues
in bottom sediments around the major known source, the Whites Point
submarine outfalls. SCCWRP also compared the concentrations off Palos
Verdes with those around the other four major municipal wastewater
outfall systems in southern California.
