Description Ten years of water quality monitoring and analysis for fecal coliform (FC) bacteria levels and loading were completed in six sub-basins discharging to Totten and Eld inlets in Puget Sound in Washington State. The sub-basins are McLane and Perry in Eld Inlet, and Burns, Pierre, Schneider, and Kennedy in Totten Inlet. The EPA 319-funded monitoring program goal was to determine the effectiveness of watershed-scale, nonpoint-source pollution management programs in improving water quality.

Post pollution-control FC concentrations and loadings fluctuated considerably. Water quality improved at two streams, but a number of factors impaired ability to link improvement to pollution control efforts.
