Description The upper Yakima River and its tributaries are used by people in many ways, from agricultural needs to recreational enjoyment. These waters are also important spawning and rearing areas for many salmonid species, as well as home to other wildlife. However, pollution threatens the health of the river and jeopardizes its many uses.
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.
