|Description||Ecology conducted a total maximum daily load (TMDL) study for the Palouse River because it has high water temperatures that do not protect fish and other native species that depend on cool, clean water. Data gathered by Ecology and the U.S. Geological Survey were the basis for listing segments of the Palouse River as impaired for temperature on Washington’s 2008 303(d) list of polluted water bodies and on prior 303(d) lists beginning in 1996. In 2007, Ecology initiated the study in this watershed to address these 303(d) listings. This report contains the study findings and an implementation plan to reduce stream temperatures.|
