Description Stream conditions and potential or existing uses were surveyed both above and below the College Place Wastewater Treatment Plant on Garrison Creek in south-eastern Washington. Observations of existing beneficial uses of Garrison Creek, including human, aquatic life, and wildlife uses, were made using water column, sediment, biological, and aquatic habitat surveys during the period of September 16-19, 1996. Anecdotal information on existing and potential uses for other seasons and in other reaches of Garrison Creek, as well as historic uses, was collected by using a survey questionnaire which was sent to individuals knowledgeable about the creek and water uses.
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.
