Description This report summarizes field measurements and laboratory data collected in Pierce County by the Department of Ecology from March 2013 to February 2014 for the Clover Creek Dissolved Oxygen, Fecal Coliform, and Temperature TMDL Study.

Concentrations of fecal coliform bacteria (FC) did not meet one or both Primary Contact Recreation criteria at over half the study sites.

Dissolved oxygen (DO) concentrations met the minimum daily DO criterion during the winter, but two-thirds of monitoring sites failed to meet the minimum during the summer.

One site met the 7-DADMax criterion (17.5°C) for water temperature throughout the summer. All other sites exceeded (did not meet) the 7-DADMax criterion.

The biological condition was classified as Poor to Very Poor based on the B-IBI. Periphyton metrics also indicated impairment.
