Description The Watershed Health Monitoring (WHM) program monitors randomly-selected streams and rivers across the state to obtain a consistent, objective picture of habitat and biological conditions and to track trends. WHM is a monitoring program designed to answer questions about the overall condition of watersheds.

In our program, we sample eight regions across the state, on a rotating basis. In 2016, we will collect samples at 50 streams and rivers in the Snake River region between July 1 and October 15. We first sampled this region in 2011, and we will return to half of these sites in 2016.
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.
