Description Ecology’s Ambient Monitoring Section monitored several stations in the middle reaches of the Little Spokane River and tributaries monthly from October 1993 to September 1994. Water quality standards were exceeded at several stations, but in general, violations were not severe or pronounced. Nutrients, especially inorganic nitrogen, were particularly high in Dragoon Creek. There was a small declining trend in the mass of total phosphorus passing the mouth of the Little Spokane River between 1978 and 1995, due as much to declining flows as to slight declines in concentration. Phosphorus concentrations since 1986 have been increasing slightly, although flux has been steady, probably also due to declining discharge during the period.
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.
