Description The 303(d) listings for temperature in streams in the Wind River basin include Bear Creek, Eightmile Creek, and Trout Creek. Temperatures in the lower portion of Trout Creek have frequently been measured near or above the lethal limit for steelhead of about 24 degrees C.

This technical assessment uses effective shade as a surrogate measure of heat flux to fulfill the requirements of the federal Clean Water Act Section 303(d) for a Total Maximum Daily Load for temperature.
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.
