Description The Squalicum Creek watershed drains 6,750 hectares in Whatcom County. The surrounding lands are under increasing development from rural agricultural to urban, commercial-industrial. Local groups are concerned with the water quality of this and other watersheds. In the fall of 2002, Ecology will conduct a screening study of the watershed. Storm water from seven sites on the creek and tributaries will be analyzed for pesticides, herbicides, mercury, arsenic, copper, lead, and zinc. Sediment will also be collected from six different catch basins in the watershed and analyzed for the above mentioned metals and components of lube oils, gas, and diesel.
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.
