Description Between May and November 2002, the Department of Ecology conducted a streamflow assessment on two tributaries to the Walla Walla River in support of a temperature Total Maximum Daily Load study. Continuous stage height recorders were installed at four sites, and several discharge measurements were taken at each site. Discharge rating curves were developed by relating discrete stage height values to corresponding discharge measurements, and a continuous discharge record was developed for each site. Channel aggradation, aquatic weed growth, and human interference were the primary causes of error in discharge data.
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.
