Description Stream macroinvertebrates were surveyed at several reaches in the Quilceda/Allen drainage to establish their value as an indicator of stream quality for salmon use. Four benthic samples were collected each from riffle and pool habitat. Quantitative physical measurements, along with water quality measurements, were made of the stream channels.
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.
