A major study in 1987-1990 mapped the locations and concentrations of
PCBs in sediments throughout Green Bay.  But what's happened to them
since then?  Recently, University of Wisconsin scientists analyzed
sediments in the bay to find out.  At this public presentation,
scientists will present the results of this update and answer these
questions:

*Where are PCBs in Green Bay today?
*Have concentrations been decreasing over the last 15 years,
increasing, or staying the same?
*What is likely to happen to these PCBs in the next 10 to 100 years?
*What are the implications for clean-up options? *Are PCBs in Green Bay
sediments still getting into the water and the fish?
