Description In 2007, the Department of Ecology published a water quality attainment monitoring report on the Skokomish River basin. The study concluded that all the sites assessed, with the exception of Weaver Creek, met the 2001 TMDL target limits for fecal coliform bacteria (FC).

In 2015, Ecology conducted follow-up monitoring. Results indicate that FC standards were met in Weaver Creek at the TMDL target location; however, established critical season FC target concentrations were not met. Also, two upstream locations in Weaver Creek, in addition to Hunter Creek, did not meet FC water quality standards.

The likely source of FC in Weaver Creek is livestock activities along the creek upstream of the Skokomish Valley Road Bridge.
