Description During 1999-2000, a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) study was conducted on the lower Skokomish River and some of its tributaries. Fecal coliform bacteria targets were set in the TMDL to protect the beneficial use of shellfish harvest in Annas Bay. This attainment monitoring report determines if the TMDL targets and water quality standards for fecal coliform are now being met.

Results show that the Skokomish River at the Highway 106 bridge, Purdy Creek, and Ten Acre Creek met TMDL targets and water quality standards for fecal coliform. Weaver Creek did not meet TMDL targets but met water quality standards for fecal coliform.
