Watershed Health Monitoring Reports and Partnerships

Status of Puget Sound Tributaries 2009: Biology, Chemistry, and Physical Habitat is an Ecology publication that presents baseline results from monitoring during the 2009 index period. It provides results for biological and habitat conditions among randomly selected streams.

State of the Sound Report contains data from this project.

State of the Salmon in Watersheds Report also uses data from this project.

Pacific Northwest Aquatic Monitoring Partnership (PNAMP) is a group of affiliated monitoring agencies with an interest in coordinating efforts across the region.
