Description Barker Creek, a small but important stream in central Kitsap County, had persistently high fecal coliform levels. A multi-agency group, made up of Kitsap County Health Department, Kitsap Conservation District, Kitsap County, Silverdale Water District, and the Department of Ecology, as well as local watershed residents and stakeholders, came together to create the Barker Creek Alternative Futures Plan. Work done through this project resulted in improved water quality in Barker Creek watershed by finding and correcting sources of pollution, and implementing several key farm plans and agricultural best management practices.
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.
