Description The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) is engaged in collection and storage of biological data from Washington State's surface waters. Biological data collection is, in part, intended to be used for delineating temporal and spatial distribution patterns as well as establishing biocriteria. The long term program goal is to develop a diagnostic tool for determining the condition and source of degradation in the state’s aquatic systems.
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.
