Description The purpose of the WQA is to determine if readily available data demonstrates that the water quality for the given waterbody supports the designated uses described in the water quality standards and begin prioritizing clean-up. Ecology accomplishes this by applying methodologies to compare available data and information to water quality standards for surface waters and sediments, following credible data protocols and requirements.
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.
