Draft study plan released for planned Marina del Rey copper bioavailability study

Posted January 29, 2016

SCCWRP in January released a draft study plan for an upcoming Marina del Rey Harbor study that will seek to measure the influence of harbor water characteristics and environmental variations on the toxicity of copper to marine life.

The draft plan includes a study justification report and a project work plan. A technical advisory committee will be reviewing the plan following approval of the study justification report, and the plan also will be subject to a public comment review period.

The one-year study, expected to be launched in spring 2016, will investigate variations in the bioavailability of dissolved copper.
