Description Sections of the Little Spokane River (LSR) and its tributaries do not meet Washington State water quality standards for fecal coliform bacteria, temperature, and turbidity. The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) conducted a total maximum daily load (TMDL) evaluation to identify the sources of these pollution problems and recommend ways to reduce or remove them. In addition, this TMDL assessment coincides with the recently completed Spokane River/Lake Spokane dissolved oxygen TMDL and the Hangman Creek fecal coliform, temperature, and turbidity TMDLs. Completing this first set of LSR watershed TMDLs provides an area-wide approach to pollutant reduction needed for water quality concerns identified in the Spokane River basin.
REQUEST A COPY 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.
