Description A two-year survey was conducted on stormwater quality discharged from western Washington construction sites during the winter, wet season. The study sites were located in Thurston, Pierce, King, and Snohomish counties.

From a total of 183 construction sites visited, 44 sites were actively discharging stormwater at the time of the visit. Samples were collected and analyzed for turbidity, transparency, and total suspended solids. Upstream and downstream receiving water samples also were collected from six of the 44 sites.
