Description Washington State is working hard to
determine if our strategies to improve
water quality are effective. The state
is just beginning to monitor programs
to assess the effectiveness of nonpoint
source controls, but we are still
years away from making a final
determination. However, in some
places we can show that water quality
is improving. Success stories are a great
way to illustrate site-specific water
quality improvements.

The success stories in this publication are samples of those that have been received through an active solicitation
to local governments, tribes, and special
purpose districts. These success stories
were collected during 2002.

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.
