NPDES 2015 Pierce County Watershed Health Monitoring, Pierce County

Pierce County participated in the 2015 Status and Trends in Receiving Waters Monitoring Project as part of the Phase 1 Municipal Stormwater Permit. The project is one element of the multi-agency Regional Stormwater Monitoring Program. The goal of the RSMP is to measure changes in Puget Lowland streams and urban shoreline areas as a result of stormwater management. Pierce County chose to monitor sites within its own jurisdictional area. We monitored 12 freshwater streams between July and September 2015. Additional information and data on this study can be found in the Washington Ecology Environmental Information Management database.
