Description A one-year survey of effluent metal concentrations and associated general chemistry parameters was conducted on four wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) and their receiving waters, all located within the Puyallup River drainage basin. The facilities include: the Orting WWTP on the lower Carbonado River, the Buckley WWTP on the White River, the Wilkeson WWTP on Wilkeson Creek, and the Carbonado WWTP on the upper Carbonado. Samples were take bimonthly at the Orting and Buckley facilities, and once every four months at the Wilkeson and Carbonado facilities.
