Description The remnant Gibbons Creek channel, located in eastern Clark County, is a 1-1/2 mile abandoned channel formed when Gibbons Creek was rerouted in 1992. This remnant channel serves as the receiving water body for wastewater from five industrial facilities, and stormwater runoff from many more facilities. Since rerouting, the amount of water available for dilution for these discharges has been substantially reduced, prompting concerns that discharges may be adversely impacting water quality and wildlife from the adjacent Steigerwald Lake Wildlife Refuge.
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.
