Description This quality assurance plan describes a monitoring program that will (1) provide a consistent, objective picture of the health of stream and river corridor habitat, and (2) detect trends.

The plan also will help policymakers in Washington State prioritize the environmental features and limiting factors that are in most need of being addressed for the protection of watershed health and salmon recovery.

The Washington Salmon Recovery Funding Board funded the development of this quality assurance monitoring plan, in response to recommendations from the Governor’s Forum on Monitoring.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
