Description The Washington State Department of Ecology is required to develop and implement Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) for impaired waters, and to evaluate the effectiveness of the clean-up plan. This report presents an assessment of the effectiveness of past TMDL implementation programs outlined in the Watershed Action plans and suggests where water quality improvements can be made in the Pipers Creek watershed.

Evaluation of available effectiveness monitoring data indicates that fecal coliform concentrations exceed both parts of the water quality criterion at all Pipers Creek sites. Efforts should be dedicated to fecal coliform sources identification and aggressive corrective actions.
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.
