Description The Quilceda Creek watershed in central Snohomish County is experiencing rapid growth and development. The physical and chemical character of Quilceda Creek, a Class A stream, will be impacted by this growth. This study investigates the relationship between Quilceda Creek and the surficial aquifer in a seven square mile study area in the Marysville Trough. We were primarily interested in whether ground water is an important component of streamflow and whether ground water influences the water quality of Quilceda Creek.
