Description The upper Yakima River watershed is an important water resource in the state of Washington. In 2002, the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) set a total maximum daily load (TMDL) for suspended sediment, turbidity and organochlorine pesticides in the watershed. In 2006, Ecology, the Kittitas County Conservation District (KCCD), and the Kittitas County Water Purveyors (KCWP) collected samples for total suspended solids (TSS) and turbidity analyses from sites throughout the watershed. The resulting data was used to evaluate if TMDL targets were met as a result of the completion of implementation activities in the watershed.
