Description The Washington State Department of Ecology conducted a total maximum daily load (TMDL) evaluation of the lower Nooksack River basin in 1997-1998. Because the lower river basin has a history of state bacteria standard violations, the TMDL focused on fecal coliform bacteria loading to the river from tributaries, sewage treatment plants, and other sources. Historical and TMDL data demonstrated the need for an aggressive approach to preventing fecal bacteria criteria violations.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
