Abstract:
Changes in the marine coastal environment caused by wastewater discharge are evaluated best by comparisons to normal or reference conditions and natural fluctuations. These differences may be factored into assessments of discharge related changes (e.g. Bernstein and Zalinski, 1983). Additionally, far field dispersion and accumulation of contaminants in the southern California coastal region should be measured periodically to appraise general environmental quality. SCCWRP provided control or reference data in 1977 when the 60-Meter Control Survey, with station from Pt. Conception to San Diego, was conducted by Word and Mearns (1979). Information from that survey has been widely used in evaluating effects of discharges into the region, (e.g., Tetra-Tech, 1980, Smith and Bernstein, 1985; Swartz et al., 1986).
Purpose:
The purpose of the Reference Site Survey is to update the 60-M Survey by resampling some of the 60 m sites and to provide reference values for additional parameters and depths not sampled in that earlier survey. This report lists and summarizes the data from the Reference Site Survey and evaluates changes in some of these parameters since the 60-M Survey in 1977.
Supplemental_Information:
Thirteen of the 60-M Survey sites were selected for this study. Sites were selected based on the designation of "control" sites by Word and Mearns (1-79) and on separate analysis of the infauna of the 60-M Survey data (Smith and Bernstein, 1985). In addition to the 60m sites, sites at 30 and 150 m were sampled creating cross-shelf transects in each area (Fig.1). A total of 38 sites were sampled; Station R6l-30 off La Jolla was abandoned since it was located in a kelp bed. Sampling was conducted Aug.-Oct., 1985 using 4 different ships (station location, sampling dates, and ships used are listed : Marine Surveyor, Seawatch, Westwind, and Monitor III.

Methodology_Description:
A. Total volatile Solids Total Volatile Solids (TV0) or total organic material, wan measured using the methods of Bysre at al., (1978) Approximately 4 grams of the top 2 cm of surface sediment is dried at 60 DC, weighed, then ashed at 500 C for 5 hours and placed ,n a dessicator until cool, The ash weight is measured and %TVS calculated( using the following formula. %TVS Dry Mt. - Ash Mt. X 100 Dry Mt. 5. Total Organic carbon Sediment samples for analysis of total organic carbon were oven dried at 600C for 24 hours. Analysis was conducted by Global Geochemistry (6919 Eton Ave., Canoga Park, CA 91303) using a LECO model WR12 Carbon Analyzer. C. Sand. Silt, clay Analysis The sample was thoroughly homogenized by stirring or shaking. Approximately 20-40 g was subsampled and placed in a 1000 ml beaker or flask. For sandy sediments, more was used (~40 g): for finer sediments less was used (~20 g). Twenty-five ml10% hydrogen peroxide was added to digest organic material. When frothing ceased, an additional 10 ml hydrogen peroxide was added and the sample was boiled to remove any excess hydrogen peroxide. Care was taken to avoid boiling over the sample. The sample was separated into sand and cilt/clay fractions by wet sieving through a 63 um stainless steel sieve. The cut/clay fraction that passed through the sieve was collected and the sand fraction was retained on the sieve. The bottom of the sieve was wrapped with foil, to prevent loss of sample, and the sample was dried at 40-50 c. The silt/clay fraction was transferred to a 1000 ml graduated cylinder and allowed to stand until most of the particles had settled (over night) . The water was decanted into 520 ml polypropylene bottles and centrifuged for 20 minutes at 1000 seN. The clear water from the centrifuged bottles was siphoned off and the remaining fine residue was washed back into the graduated cylinder. Twenty-five ml of 10 Calgon solution was added to the silt/clay fraction to prevent flocculation of the sediment Particles. The sample was then adjusted to 1000 ml with distilled H2O and observed for flocculation. The sample was vigorously mixed end a 25 ml sample was withdrawn from a depth of 20 cm, 20 seconds after the stirring was stopped (silt fraction). The sample and pipet were rinsed with distilled water into the aluminum dish and dried in a pre-weighed aluminum weighing dish. n 25 ml sample was taken from C depth of 5 cm at the times tabulated by Plumb (1981) and transferred to a pre-weighed aluminum dish (clay fraction( . Twenty-five mls of 1% Calgon solution was also dried in a pre-weighed dish to act as a correction factor in the pipette analysis calculations. After the sand fraction was dried, a sieve was placed over a smooth sheet of paper. A 1-inch soft bristle paint brush was used to brush the particles across the screen until no fine particles continued to pass through the sieve. The fine particles that passed through the 63 um sieve were dried in a pre-weighed aluminum dish and the dried weight added to the silt fraction. The sieve was inverted and the screen brushed to remove additional sand particles caught in the sieve and added to the sand dish. In the 60-N Survey, 0 Sand was measured in a similar manner, but the dry sieving step was omitted. Aluminum dishes containing the samples were dried at 50u~ and weighed to the nearest 0.0001 g. Calculations were as follows. Silt weight ( LNet weight sample - Calgon correction factor) X 40) + Additional silt Clay weight - (net weight sample - Calgon correction factor) X 40 Calgon correction factor - (net weight of 25o1 Calgon) 0 .025 (ml of calgon in sample) D. Trace Metals in Sediments. Sediment samples were analyzed for silver, cadmium, chromium, copper, nickel, lead, zinc. A wet-washing technique was used to digest the samples. Thin moderate digestion procedure extracts most of the metals usually considered to be biologically available, such as those associated with organic matter, sulfides, oxides and those adsorbed on the surface of solids. Metals associated with the silicate minerals (part of the lithogenous fraction) essentially are not biologically available and are not selected by this procedure. To prepare samples, approximately 0.5 to 2.0 g of well-mixed sediment are weighed into a glass-covered. 150-ml beaker and dried to constant weight at 75OC. A nitric acid solution 120 ml of 1:1) is added to the dried samples, which are then heated to incipient boiling until about 3 ml of liquid remains; this procedure is then repeated. Then 15 ml of distilled deionized water and 5 ml of concentrated hydrochloric acid are added and the mixture boiled for 20 minutes. After cooling to room temperature, the digestate is then filtered through an acid-washed Whatman No. 40 filter paper (8-micron pore size, and the resulting filtrate is diluted with distilled, deionized water to 50 ml. Analytical blanks are prepared along with the sediment samples, using the same procedures end reagents. Samples are analyzed on a yarian-Techtron atomic absorption spectrophotometer (Model SA-fi equipped with a simultaneous background corrector (Model ac-6) , a premix type of burner, and a carbon-rod atomizer (model 63). When a sample has a relatively high metals content, the diluted filtrate is aspirated into an air/acetylene flame. The concentration of trace metals are then determined by comparing the results against known standards. A previous study of matrix interferences in flame atomic absorption revealed no significant interferences in detection of the seven elements in question, given a sample size 'of up to 2 grams. The approximate detection limits for the metals using this method era as follows.. Limit Limit Metal (ug/kg) Metal _______ Silver 0.6 Nickel 1.8 Cadmium 0.4 Lead 3.0 Chromium 1.5 Sino 0.3 Copper 1.4 If a metal is present in concentrations below the flame detection limit, a flameless method is used in the analysis; with the flameless procedure, 5 ul of treated solution are injected into a graphite furnace. The silver and cadmium concentrations in some samples from this survey were determined using this method. Matrix interferences are checked, and compensations are made by running separate spiked samples. The detection limits for silver and cadmium, with the flameless method are approximately 20 and 10 ng/gram. respectively. All reagents are analytical regent grade, the water is deionized and distilled, and all standards are prepared by the dilution of 1,000 ppm stock solutions. The glassware and plastic containers are cleaned by soaking in 6 percent nitric acid solution for more than 24 hours and then rinsed in distilled water. 5, Measurement of Trace organics end Lipids. All glassware was cleaned by washing with soap and water, rinsing with tap water, rinsing with deionized water, were heated to 540 C for 4 hours. All utensils were either stainless steel or Teflon coated end were rinsed with solvent before each use. All solvents were of pesticide quality. The sediment and tissue samples were extracted by weighing out 1-10 g of sample, adding 0 ml distilled water, 20 ml methanol, 10 ml chloroform and homogenizing for 1 minute with a high speed homogenizer (polytron) equipped with a titanium blade. Than 10 ml chloroform was added and the sample blended for 30 seconds, followed by adding 10 ml of distilled water and 30 seconds of homogenizing. The sample was then centrifuged at approximately 1200 X to separate the layers. The chloroform layer was removed and the remaining aqueous layer was extracted two more times with 10 ml of chloroform. The combined chloroform extracts wars split into 3 fractions; one for archive, one for polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) analysis and one for chlorinated hydrocarbon (CHC) analysis/lipid determination. Percent lipids were determined by removing the chloroform from that fraction and weighing the residue. Chlorinated hydrocarbons were determined by re-dissolving the lipid in hexane and eluting the sample through activated Florisil (heated to 7000C for 4 hours) with 45 ml 60 diethyl ether in hexane. The samples were then chromatographed on a Varian Vista 44 system equipped with a split injector at 250 C, a 30 mX 0.25 mm 2.0. DB-5 fused silica capillary column (J & W scientific ( which was temperature programmed from 1500C to 274 C at 4 C/min. with a helium carrier velocity of 25 cm/sec, and an electron capture detector heated to 325 C. The internal standard used was Mirex and all calculations were based on response factors for the standards of p,p'-DDE; p,p'-DDD; p,p' -DDT; o,p'-DDE; o,p'-DDD, o,p'-DDT: Aroclor 1242; Aroclor 1254; hexachlorbenzene and lindane. Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons were determined by replacing the chloroform with hexane ,and reducing the volume to 0.5 ml. The sample was then placed on a column containing activated silica gel (heated to 240 C for I0 hours) . The column was then eluted with 20 ml of hexane, the first 5 ml were discarded and the next 15 collected as the aliphatic fraction (F1). Next the column was eluted with 32 ml of 60:40 (hexane:benzene) the first 7 ml were collected in F1 and the remaining 25 ml were collected as the aromatic fraction (F2). Stable isotope labeled standards of naphthalene, acenapthene, phenanthrene, chrysene, and perylene were added just t prior to placing each sample onto the silica gel column. The F2 samples were reduced to 100 ml and anthracene-d10 was assessed as an internal standard. The samples were then analyzed by splitless injection on a Hewlett Packard 59700 GCMS equipped with a 30 x 0.25 mm I.D. DB5 fused silica capillary column (J & W Scientific) with a helium carrier velocity of 25 cm/sec. Each sample was scanned by selected ion monitoring for the major fragment of each compound reported with an ionizing voltage of 1400 volts. Relative response factors were determined for each individual compound using actual standards. The extraction technique used for this study varies from the 6n-M Survey as follows. For the sediments, the samples were oven-dried at 60 C overnight for the 1977 survey. This technique has been shown to cause an unpredictable loss of up to 50% for the DDTs and PCBs (Roger Baird, L.A. County Sanitation District, personal Communication). Therefore, for the 1955 survey, we switched to a wet extraction technique. For the tissues, we used acetonitrite as the extraction solvent and for the 1985 survey, we used chloroform and methanol. This change in our tissue extraction technique has been shown to produce comparable results. The final difference between the 1977 and 1985 surveys was the change from packed column to capillary column, which did not significantly effect the results.
Methodology_Type: Field
Methodology_Description:
The grabs were taken with a 0.10 m chain-rigged Van Veen grab. For sediment analyses, subsamples were taken from the grab sample: one for trace metals, grain-size, and organic material, and the second for chlorinated and petroleum hydrocarbons. To collect the subsamples, 5 small subcores were taken from the top 2 cm of the sample using an open barreled syringe (26 mm dia.) , composited, and immediately frozen (see Appendix 2A-C for details of analysis).
