Description The Watershed Health Monitoring program samples randomly-selected streams and rivers across Washington State to obtain a consistent, objective picture of biological, chemical, and habitat conditions and to track trends. The program is designed to answer questions about the overall condition of watersheds.

In this program, we sample eight regions across the state, on a rotating basis. During 2018, we will collect samples at 50 streams and rivers in the Northeast Washington region between July 1 and October 15. We first sampled this region in 2012, and we will return to half of these sites in 2018.
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.
