Description The Tucannon River, in southeast Washington State, is an important water body to conservationists, local farmers and ranchers, and native Indian tribes in the area. It is also home to four species of endangered fish. The river does not meet the state water quality standards and is listed on the 303(d) list for pH and temperature due to impacts from cattle grazing and wheat and hay production in the area. To address these issues landowners, the Columbia Conservation District, Bonneville Power Administration, and other agencies worked together to develop the Tucannon Model Watershed. Their continued efforts are resulting in improved water quality and fish habitat.
