Description The Hangman Creek Watershed is involved in a long process to develop a water quality improvement plan (also known as a total maximum daily load or TMDL). The watershed consists of 689 square miles in the states of Washington and Idaho, and the Coeur d’Alene Tribal Reservation. Hangman Creek and its tributaries generally have too much fecal coliform bacteria and sediment in the water during the high-flow winter and spring months. To better manage the watershed, a funding source was necessary to help landowners and producers employ these practices, and this funding needed to be available throughout the entire watershed, not just in Washington. So a joint proposal was submitted to help landowners and produces employ best management practices (BMPs).
