Description The Department of Ecology (Ecology) has conducted a long-term water quality study of state freshwater rivers and streams since the 1950s. The primary goal of this study is to provide timely and accurate monthly water quality data to Ecology clients. The data are available to the public and widely used by agencies, consulting firms, universities, and other interested people. The data can be used to determine current water quality conditions, long-term water quality changes and trends, and water quality standard impairments.

This Programmatic Quality Assurance Monitoring Plan (QAMP) describes the study elements used to ensure measurement accuracy, statewide method consistency, and high data quality. It includes a study design outline for data quality objectives, quality control, field and laboratory methods, and data management procedures.
