Chemicals take various routes to Great Lakes
from Environmental Health News
Scientists discovered that Toronto exports polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, to Lake Ontario mostly through the air. But its flame retardants and combustion pollutants reach the lake through tributaries. The different routes are important to understand because they could help regulators determine where specific chemicals come from, and the tributary findings inform scientists searching for routes of emerging contaminants.
