Description A Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study for fecal coliform bacteria (FC) was conducted
for the Skokomish River, because FC levels were not meeting fresh water quality standards due to nonpoint source pollution. The goal of the TMDL is to protect public health from pathogens in fresh water and help protect the marine waters of Hood Canal and shellfish harvesting in Annas Bay. The study was a cooperative effort with the Skokomish Tribe, whose Reservation includes part of the watershed. This study precedes the development of a water cleanup plan which will guide activities to better manage FC pollution.
