Ebright Creek Macroinvertebrate Inventory, City of Sammamish

The City of Sammamish is assessing the resource availability and productivity of Ebright Creek. To meet the "Mitigated Determination of Non-Significant" conditions set out by the hearing examiner for the Chestnut Lanes and the Crossings at Pine Lake housing developments, the City of Sammamish is evaluating whether the fish habitat of Ebright Creek is being degraded by any increased erosion and sedimentation resulting from the construction of these developments. As part of the City's efforts, they are monitoring long-term macroinvertebrate, habitat, and water quality changes.
