The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has conducted an environmental monitoring program in the Elizabeth River, Virginia for several years. The overall aim of this monitoring program has been to develop an assessment of the rivers “health” and to develop methods that would allow DEQ to track the state of the watershed through implementation of a long-term monitoring program for water, sediment and biota. This report summarizes the results from an investigation of mummichog (Fundulus heteroclitus) liver pathology and sediment chemical analyses.
A Final Report Submitted to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality.
