dc.description.abstract The goal of the present study was to assess the ecological impacts of legacy and contemporary endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) in the upper tidal Potomac River associated with WWTP discharge. Legacy EDCs includes polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and the present study quantified total-PCBs and dioxin like PCBs (dl-PCBs), which are the more toxic PCB congeners, in bed sediments and biota from Hunting Creek and Gunston cove to evaluate the significance of dl-PCBs in the upper Potomac River.
