The Chesapeake Bay Groundwater Toxics Loading Workshop was held April 15-16, 1992, at the U.S. EPA Chesapeake Bay Program Office. Workshop participants reviewed and discussed available information on results from groundwater studies and developed a strategy to provide a firs order estimate of the magnitude of groundwater loads of toxic substances to Chesapeake Bay and its tidal tributaries. The participants also recommended that groundwater loads of nutrients should be assessed concurrently with the toxic substance loads.
