Description:
Abstract:
The Washington State Department of Ecology has conducted monthly water quality monitoring at hundreds of freshwater and marine water quality stations throughout the state since 1959. Ecology monitors about 80 stations each year, some on a one-year basis, some on a five-year rotation, and some are monitored continuously. This spatial data set shows the location of these monitoring stations.
Purpose:
Describe locations of Environmental Assessment Program (formerly called Environmental Investigations and Laboratory Services Program) Ambient Freshwater and Marine monitoring Stations.

Other_Citation_Details:
The Washington State Department of Ecology collected monthly water quality information at 86 stream monitoring stations during Water Year 2001 (October 1, 1999 through September 30, 2001). We also collected 30-minute interval temperature data at 44 sites from June through September 2001. The principal goals of this ongoing monitoring are to characterize the rivers and streams of Washington State and to track changes in water quality. This report is intended to document methods and data quality, and to present the data.
