Puyallup River Watershed: Fecal Coliform Total Maximum Daily Load - Water Quality Improvement Report and Implementation Plan
Puyallup River Watershed: Fecal Coliform Total Maximum Daily Load - Water Quality Improvement Report and Implementation Plan (Number of pages: 177) (Publication Size: 6MB)
|James, Cindy; Mathieu, Nuri
|The Puyallup River, White River, and several of their tributaries have fecal coliform (FC) bacteria levels higher than Washington State’s allowed levels (standards) for freshwater streams. These typically harmless bacteria tend to exist along with disease-causing bacteria and viruses (i.e., pathogens), so they serve to indicate the potential for pathogens in the water. The goal of this Puyallup River watershed FC TMDL is to reduce FC concentrations within the study area (Figure ES-1) to water quality standards by 2021.
