Description Data from a water quality improvement plan showed that failing septic systems were impacting some streams in the Colville River Watershed. Ecology worked with the Stevens County Conservation District and the Northeast Tri-County Health District to get grant funds to homeowners to help fix their septic systems, which helped reduce the fecal coliform bacteria load to the watershed.
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.
