Abstract: Petroleum hydrocarbon content in intertidal sediment and water samples collected at Madh, Worli and Colaba were in the ranges of 5.1-7, 5.8-7.4, 2.9-10.3 mu g.g(-1), wet wt and N.D.-18.5, N.D.-93.5, N.D.-5.8 mu g.l(-1) respectively. The concentrations in sediment were negligible and uniform. The contamination was less in seawater during September 1991 while high levels of 57.4 and 93.5 mu g.l(-1) were observed in seawater samples from Worli during December 1990 and May 1991 respectively. The high level of petroleum hydrocarbons (153.8 mu g.l(-1)) in water sample collected near an outfall indicated that the intertidal ecosystem of Worli might be contaminated by the effluent discharges from the onshore industrial unit.
