Description Previous sampling of the Colville River has found bacteria violations of the state water quality standards during the summer months. In response to these impairments, the Washington State Department of Ecology conducted a total maximum daily load study for fecal coliform in the Colville River basin from March 2000 through March 2001. A total of 10 mainstem and 15 tributary and headwater sites were sampled every other week. Discharge during the study averaged 27% above normal. Study results showed violations of the state bacteria standards were widespread through the dry season.
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.
