The purpose of this Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) is to ensure that non-TMDL surveys conducted in western Washington by staff from Ecology’s Northwest and Southwest Regional Offices, as well as the Bellingham Field Office, result in credible FC data. The QAPP does this by describing a programmatic strategy and consistent methods for collecting water samples. It then details procedures for handling and analyzing those water samples.

An addendum to this QAPP will be prepared annually as surveys from prior years are completed and plans are made to survey new watersheds and water bodies. An addendum will also be prepared if new field measurements are made or if water samples are analyzed for new parameters.
