Description The Department of Ecology conducted water quality monitoring and modeling for the Wenatchee River Basin in 2002-2004. This report summarizes the data quality assurance and findings of that study.

Reserve load capacities for biochemical oxygen demand and nutrients are recommended for the upper Wenatchee River and upper Icicle Creek to maintain water quality standards during critical conditions.

Loading sources and assimilative capacities for inorganic phosphorus were determined for the lower Wenatchee River and lower Icicle Creek. Large reductions in phosphorus loading are needed to meet the assimilative capacities of the lower Wenatchee River and Icicle Creek during critical conditions.
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.
