Description The East Fork Lewis River in southwest Washington State is under pressure from growth, resulting in many small, uncontrolled sources of pollution entering the river. In order to return the East Fork Lewis to a healthy condition, a coordinated process has begun that will result in what’s called a total maximum daily load (TMDL) or water cleanup plan. The process, described in the federal Clean Water Act, will be used to reduce harmful bacteria and lower water temperatures in the river.
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.
