Description Previous studies have documented pH levels in the Lower White River not meeting (above) Washington State water quality standards. Before 2004, most of the river’s flow was diverted for power generation. In 2004 flow was returned to the Lower White River bypass reach, which may have affected pH levels.

This study provides more current pH data, as well as algae and other water quality sample data, for the Lower White River. The study found that pH levels met water quality standards during three 48-hour continuous deployments in September and October 2009.
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.
