1 Mercury Transport to San Francisco Bay through the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. Nicole David, Lester J. McKee, Jon E. Leatherbarrow December 15, 2005 Item #7

2 Sampling Event 2005 January 3 through 6, 2005

3 Sampling Event 2005 Max dayflow 58,000 cfs (Max dayflow so far 150,000 cfs)

4 Sampling Event 2005 Max HgT ng/L

5 Relationship between total Hg and SSC

6 Relationship between total Hg and SSC influenced by salinity

8 Organic Contaminants *four samples collected in May 2003 had TPCB concentrations ranging from 890 – 6700 pg/L Item #7

9 Preliminary Loading Estimates Loads are preliminary and were estimated using Regression (REG) and Flow Weighted Mean Concentrations (FWMC). Preliminary estimates of errors are approximately ± 25%. PCBs PAHs FWMC Item #7

10 Project Sampling Schedule WY 2006: Collect first flush data and sample storm event over 150,000 cfs WY 2007: Sample storm event over 150,000 cfs only* WY 2008: Sample storm event over 150,000 cfs only* WY 2009: Sample all floods * With RMP contingency money
