|Author(s)||Zalewsky, B. and D. Bilhimer|
|Description||The 303(d) listings for stream temperature in the lower Skagit River basin include the following creeks: Carpenter, Fisher, Hansen, Lake, Nookachamps, East Fork Nookachamps, Red, Turner, and Otter Pond.
This technical assessment uses effective shade as a surrogate measure of heat flux to fulfill the requirements of the federal Clean Water Act Section 303(d) for a Total Maximum Daily Load for temperature.
In addition to load allocations for effective shade, other management activities are recommended for compliance with water quality standards for water temperature, including measures to promote water-use efficiency and increase groundwater inflows into the streams.
