Description Urban and suburban streams experience pollution and hydrologic stresses from local development. The small effect that each streamside home makes is compounded as the number of homes grows. As a result, water quality and fish habitat suffer. The mission of the Adopt-A-Stream Foundation is to go door-to-door and provide a personalized education to each streamside landowner on how to protect their local stream, and their property. The Adopt-A-Stream Foundation worked with a neighborhood in the Marysville area to lower stream temperatures and improve water quality along Hayho Creek in the Middle Fork of Quilceda Creek.
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.
