This September, the Washington State Department of Ecology issued a report on the concentration of two toxins in urban Seattle soils. The full report is at http://www.ecy.wa.gov/pubs/1109049.pdf.
- South Park
- West Seattle
- Capitol Hill
The neighborhoods selected were intended to represent the range of historical conditions likely to be found in Seattle residential areas. Neighborhoods were selected based on presumed differences in land use history (industrial, non-industrial) and factors affecting deposition or accumulation.
