Abstract:
The Department of Ecology (WDOE) conducted a Class II Inspection of the Boise Cascade Corp. bleached kraft pulp and paper mill at Wallula, WA during April of 1992. The mill is located on the east shore of the Columbia River (Lake Wallula) about 15 miles southeast of Pasco. It discharges an average of 30 million gallons per day of secondary treated effluent and non-contact cooling water to the Columbia via a mid-channel diffuser at RM 316 (NPDES permit No. WA 000369-7). The primary objectives of this inspection were to: verify compliance with NPDES permit limits, assess potential for the effluent to cause aquatic toxicity, evaluate efficiency of wastewater treatment, obtain data on dioxins and other toxics in bleach plant effluents and in sludges and to survey the Columbia River sediment quality above and below the mill. The area of study was Columbia River Lake Walula. Stations sampled were in the Lake Wallula area: Badger Island, Old Outfall, Port Kelley and Hat Rock. Sediment samples consisted of a homogenized composite of 3 grab samples. Samples were shipped on ice to laboratory. Sample chain-of-custody procedures were followed. Target analytes were Dioxins and furans; metals; PCBs; organochlorine pesticides; volatiles; semi-volatiles. Analytical techniques included volatiles (EPA Method 8240); OC pesticides (EPA Method 8080); semi-volatiles (EPA Method 8270); Dioxins and furans (EPA Method 8290); Priority metals (EPA Method 200); Cr (EPA Method 7195); CN (ALPHA 45000-CN). All data are reported on a dry weight basis. Total dioxin and furan concentrations were determined by the laboratory as the sum of the individual congeners that were detected. The information for this metadata was taken from the Columbia River Basin: Sediment Database Abstracts.

Attribute_Accuracy_Report:
Written Quality Assurance reviews were prepared by the Manchester Laboratory for all laboratory data contained in this report. QA measures included an assessment of sample holding times, instrument calibration, method blanks, spike and surrogate recoveries and precision data. All chemical data are considered acceptable for use with the qualifiers provided. The laboratory data were reviewed and data qualifiers were added as appropriate. The data qualifiers used were defined as follows: B-Analyte also found in laboratory blank; E-Estimated maximum possible concentration. J-Estimated concentration. N-Spike recovery outside of laboratory control limits. P-For metals "P" indicates that analyte detected below quantitation limit. For dioxin and furan congers "P" indicates that there were poorly resolved gas chromatograph peaks. Q-Quantitative interference. U-Not detected. Value is the detection limit. Data not meeting project guidelines for laboratory precision or accuracy have been qualified where appropriate. All data entered in the database were reviewed for data entry errors. All detected errors were corrected.
