Description Inglin Creek and Spiketon Ditch, tributaries to South Prairie Creek, do not meet Washington State water quality criteria for fecal coliform (FC) bacteria.

The objective of the study was to provide data that lend guidance to the associated water quality improvement projects. Data collected included: FC bacteria with membrane filter analysis, streamflow, temperature, specific conductance, dissolved oxygen, and pH. Stormwater ditches were also sampled for FC bacteria, flows permitting.

The results show all 13 routine monitoring sites did not meet the 90th percentile water quality criterion for FC bacteria. Limited data indicate that stormwater conveys FC to the waterbodies. Watershed cleanup is recommended.
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.
