Little Spokane River Watershed Fecal Coliform Bacteria, Temperature, and Turbidity Total Maximum Daily Load: Water Quality Improvement Report
Little Spokane River Watershed Fecal Coliform Bacteria, Temperature, and Turbidity Total Maximum Daily Load: Water Quality Improvement Report (Number of pages: 256) (Publication Size: 6MB)
|Joe Joy and Jon Jones
|Sections of the Little Spokane River (LSR) and its tributaries do not meet Washington State water quality standards for fecal coliform bacteria, temperature, and turbidity. The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) conducted a total maximum daily load (TMDL) evaluation to identify the sources of these pollution problems and recommend ways to reduce or remove them. In addition, this TMDL assessment coincides with the recently completed Spokane River/Lake Spokane dissolved oxygen TMDL and the Hangman Creek fecal coliform, temperature, and turbidity TMDLs. Completing this first set of LSR watershed TMDLs provides an area-wide approach to pollutant reduction needed for water quality concerns identified in the Spokane River basin.
