Description There has been a long history of regulatory confusion and inaction in connection with grounwater contamination affecting public and private drinking water wells primarily in the Lower Yakima valley.

The purpose of this report is to provide recommendations to state and local officials for consideration and further action based upon an initial assessment of available information and data on nitrates and groundwater contamination. This report is designed to be the foundation from which recommendations and strategies can be developed. It is also designed to help identify actions that can be taken to address and improve groundwater quality problems in the Lower Yakima Valley.

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.
