Description This report presents results of an analysis of water quality monitoring data from the Nooksack River at Brennan and at North Cedarville. Fecal coliform bacteria, the biggest contributor to poor water quality in the lower Nooksack River among the constituents we monitor, have declined dramatically during the past 20 years. There were indications that major sediment contributions to the lower river have also declined. However, nitrogen concentrations were much higher at the lower station than at the upper and concentrations may be increasing. Sediment additions from smaller sources in the reach may also be increasing.
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.
