Description The federal Clean Water Act gives states the primary responsibility for protecting and restoring water quality, including monitoring and assessing the nation’s waters and reporting on their quality. This document describes Washington State’s current water quality monitoring programs, evaluates where additional monitoring is needed, and outlines the strategies that the Department of Ecology will employ to meet the monitoring goals outlined in the federal Clean Water Act. The document follows a format recommended by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
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.
