Description This report presents baseline results from monitoring for the Watershed Health and Salmon Recovery Program (WHSR) during the 2009 index period. It provides results for biological and habitat conditions among randomly selected streams of the Puget Sound Status and Trends Region (STR). For available metrics with sufficient signal-to-noise, we describe estimated cumulative scores across the network of target streams in the STR. We also provide an evaluation of the metrics based on precision. These results are considered to be a first step while database development continues.
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.
