Description The Humptulips River lies in the southwestern portion of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State Department of Ecology’s (Ecology) Water Resource Inventory Area 22, the Lower Chehalis basin. The river is considered water quality impaired for temperature. There were total maximum daily load studies (TMDL) conducted by Ecology in the lower (Pelletier and Seiders, 2000) and the upper (Cleland, 2001) watersheds. Monitoring found that the Humptulips River had water temperatures warmer than the state water quality standards. The objective for this study is to continuously monitor temperature through the summer of 2010 to determine if water quality temperatures are meeting state water quality standards.

Each study conducted by Ecology must have an approved Quality Assurance (QA) Project Plan. The QA Project Plan describes the objectives of the study and the procedures to be followed to achieve those objectives. After completion of the study, a final report describing the study results will be posted to the Internet.
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.
