Description The Palouse River and three of its tributaries (Rebel Flat Creek, Willow Creek, and Cow Creek) are listed on the federal Clean Water Act 303(d) list as impaired for fecal coliform bacteria. This Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) report includes a study of the bacteria impairment, indicates how much the bacteria needs to be reduced to meet Washington State water quality standards (load and wasteload allocations), and describes activities to achieve those reductions.
