Abstract:
Fish and macroinvertebrate communities near major wastewater outfalls in southern California have been monitored for over twenty years. The objective of the monitoring is to determine the impact of the wastewater discharge on these communities. Since marine communities are variable both in space and time, the determination of impact is usually achieved by comparing conditions in the vicinity of the outfalls to conditions in "reference" areas, that is, areas believed to be free from impacts from human activities. On three occasions SCCWRP has conducted surveys of sediment characteristics, contaminant levels, and biological conditions on the southern California mainland shelf in order to provide reference values for comparison to data collected from areas affected by wastewater discharge. The first survey was conducted in 1977 (Word and Mearns 1979). Seventy benthic grab samples and 53 trawl samples were taken from 71 stations distributed at approximately 1 0-kilometer intervals between Point Conception and the Mexican Border. Samples were taken at a depth of approximately 60 meters because most of the major outfalls discharge at this depth. In 1985, 13 of the original 71 stations were reoccupied (Thompson et al. 1987). Samples were taken at 30, 60 and 1 50 meters in order to provide data for the range of depths sampled in the monitoring programs. The third SCCWRP reference survey was conducted in 1990.
Purpose:
This report contains the results of the 1990 survey. It also updates the preceding reports, with several differences. New in the 1990 Reference Survey are estimates of reference values for near-bottom salinity; total nitrogen, iron, and manganese ; and nine polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbon (PAHs) compounds in sediments. Variables reported in previous surveys that are not included in this report are estimates for contaminants in tissues, concentrations of lindane, hexachlorobenzene, o,p' DDD, lipids, total volatile solids (TVS), and several PAH compounds in sediments. The 1990 survey was designed to update the information collected in the 1977 and 1985 surveys.

Methodology_Description:
Megafaunal invertebrates and fish were collected at each site using a 7.6 m otter trawl The same trawl gear and collection methods were used in the 1977, 1985, and 1990 surveys (Mearns and Stubbs 1974).
