Description This document provides a summary of the Puget Sound Watershed Characterization assessments of water flow processes, sediment process degradation and local salmonid habitat value for watersheds within WRIA 7. The results are intended to assist King and Snohomish Counties in developing planning level strategies that help identify and locate land protection measures that provide the greatest relative benefit to water flow processes and local salmonid habitat, and that can be further developed into land use policies and development standards.
NOTES: This report was developed to support the efforts of the Lead Entity for the Water Resources Inventory Area (WRIA) 7 Salmon Recovery in the development of an addendum to their plan which focuses on strategies for protection of hydrologic processes.
