Description In 2001, the Department of Ecology (Ecology) completed a TMDL study (water cleanup plan) of the Union River and three of its tributaries. The study found violations of Washington State water quality standards for fecal coliform bacteria. In 2002, Ecology submitted a TMDL report to EPA to address fecal coliform in the Union River watershed. Since then, several pollution reduction actions have been implemented.

In 2008-2009, Ecology conducted an effectiveness monitoring study. This evaluation shows that fecal coliform concentrations in the Union River and its tributaries have not yet shown significant improvement at target locations since the 2001 TMDL study.

The Cadmus Group conducted this study and wrote this report under contract with the Department of Ecology.
