Description This report presents a comprehensive assessment by the Washington State Department of Ecology of fecal coliform bacteria sources to Grays Harbor. This study includes quantification of sources of fecal coliform, levels of contamination, pollutant transport mechanisms, and die-off within Grays Harbor. Shellfish growers in the outer harbor are experiencing repeated temporary closures, due to violations of fecal coliform discharge limits in existing point source and nonpoint sources of fecal coliform.
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.
