Description Black Creek is in central Grays Harbor County, in the Washington State Department of Ecology’s (Ecology) Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 22. Black Creek is a tributary to the Wynoochee River, which is a major tributary to the Chehalis River. Black Creek is on the 303(d) list for temperature and has been since 1998. The category 5 listing is the result of data collected in 1990 by Ecology where water temperatures were found to exceed 18?C, the previous Class A standard. This 2010 study will monitor current water temperatures to determine if temperatures in Black Creek meet the Core Summer Salmonid Habitat water quality standard of 16?C.
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.
