Description In 1995, Ecology completed a TMDL study (water cleanup plan) of Salmon Creek and four of its tributaries. The study found violations of Washington State water quality standards for fecal coliform bacteria, turbidity, dissolved oxygen, and temperature. In 2001, Ecology submitted a TMDL report to EPA to address fecal coliform and turbidity in the Salmon Creek watershed. Since the TMDL study, several pollution reduction actions have been implemented. This evaluation shows that fecal coliform concentrations in Salmon Creek and its tributaries have improved significantly. However, water quality criteria have not been met at some sampling stations. All of the sites met TMDL target limits for turbidity.
