Description Segments of the Little Klickitat River, Swale Creek, and their tributaries were initially identified by the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) as having temperatures exceeding state water quality standards for the 1996 Section 303(d) list of impaired waters. The Central Klickitat Conservation District (CKCD) has since been committed to watershed planning efforts, which enable us to gain understanding of issues affecting stream temperature conditions and to develop solutions. One action has been to establish and maintain a network of stream temperature monitoring sites and stream flow gage stations in the watershed. In partnership with involved agencies and local landowners, CKCD has moved forward to implement Best Management Practices (BMPs) in the Little Klickitat and Swale Creek watersheds that will address resource concerns, particularly water quality.

This Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) is funded with Ecology agreement WQC-2016-CKliCD-00003 and supports baseline and effectiveness water quality monitoring for phase 7 BMP implementation of the Little Klickitat River Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) and phase 3 BMP implementation of the Swale Creek Straight to Implementation (STI) draft plan.
