Description This report describes the water quality monitoring results during the second year of a six year project to evaluate the effectiveness of best management practices (BMPs). Pre-BMP monitoring was done on Beaver Creek and post BMP monitoring on Allen Creek, a tributary to Beaver Creek. Beaver Creek drains to the Black River near Littlerock in Thurston County. The 1995-96 monitoring results show violations in fecal coliform criteria for all sites and increases in nitrogen loads from upstream to downstream. Post-BMP monitoring is recommended for Beaver Creek beginning in 1996-97, and possible nitrogen sources between the BMP site and the mouth of Beaver Creek should be investigated.
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.
