Description The study area for the upper Naches River Temperature Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) consists of the mainstem Naches River from the confluence with the Tieton River to the U.S. Forest Service boundary; all major tributaries along this reach; and Cowiche Creek. Ecology conducted field work in 2004.

This report presents an analysis of the spatial and temporal stream temperature patterns and results of a QUAL2Kw stream temperature model used to investigate possible thermal behaviors. Based on the model, this TMDL sets effective shade load allocations. Other management activities are recommended including measures to increase channel stability and channel complexity.
