Description The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) conducted a total maximum daily load (TMDL) evaluation of the lower Yakima River basin in 1994-1995. The TMDL was conducted in cooperation with the USEPA and the Yakama Indian Nation, who are also water quality managers in the basin. The TMDL evaluation focused on total suspended sediment (TSS) and DDT loads from irrigated agricultural areas during the irrigation season.
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.
