Description This poster was presented at the Salmon Recovery Conference, May 27-29, 2015, in Vancouver, Washington. It summarizes the report of the same name published in September 2014; see link under Related Publications below.

This assessment provides the science foundation for the update of the state nonpoint plan, entitled “Washington's Water Quality Management Plan to Control Nonpoint Source Pollution.”

In this report, we synthesized existing information to characterize major nonpoint pollution issues in Washington, using several approaches spanning various pollutant types, land uses, and regions of Washington.

Findings showed that nonpoint pollution is still a widespread problem in Washington, contributing to multiple water quality issues that can impact both human health and aquatic wildlife.
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.
