Description An upper Yakima River basin suspended sediment and organochlorine pesticide total maximum daily load (TMDL) evaluation was conducted by the Washington State Department of Ecology as required by the federal Clean Water Act. This evaluation was an extension of the 1997 lower Yakima basin TMDL and addressed several organochlorine pesticide 303(d) listings of water column and fish tissue in the upper basin. Turbidity and suspended sediment were included as transport mechanisms for the pesticides and as pollutants themselves.
