Abstract:

The Chester River Study was undertaken to provide the Maryland Department of Natural Resources with environmental and resource management information. Several environmental issues and resource management problems were the focus of the study. One environmental concern was a class of chemical compounds called chlorinated hydrocarbons. These compounds consist of the hard pesticides such as DDT and chlordane, and the polychlorinated biphenyls PCBs widely used in industrial applications.
