Description Water quality monitoring for fecal coliform bacteria (FC bacteria) was conducted in the Pierre Creek and Burns Creek watersheds during spring 2007and fall 2007. The objectives of the study were to assess compliance with Washington State’s Extraordinary Primary Contact Recreational water quality standards for FC bacteria and to identify potential sources of FC bacteria. Results show that FC bacteria levels are not meeting the Extraordinary Primary Contact standard for FC bacteria in either Pierre or Burns Creek. Areas draining livestock pasture have the highest FC bacteria concentrations.
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.
