Water Quality stories support the Water Quality Program's activities. Some stories may fall under more than one category, and are listed accordingly.
Transforming Watersheds - Middle Tucannon River - Columbia County
The Tucannon River, in Southeast Washington State, does not meet the state water quality standards for pH and temperature due to impacts from cattle grazing, and wheat and hay production in the area. To address these issues landowners, the Columbia Conservation District, Bonneville Power Administration, and other agencies worked together to develop the Tucannon Model Watershed. Their continued efforts are resulting in improved water quality and fish habitat.
