Description This summer between July 29 and August 15, the Washington State Department of
Ecology (Ecology) will measure stream temperatures in several rivers and streams in
the Wenatchee watershed using airborne thermal infrared imaging. Increased water
temperature is one of the leading water-quality problems in Washington’s waterways.
Federal law requires states to identify and clean up waters that don’t meet water
quality standards. These water quality cleanup plans are also called Total Maximum
Daily Loads or TMDLs.
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.
