Stream biological monitoring We collect biological data from stream sites around the state, evaluating multiple aquatic communities to assess river and stream health. Because stream-dwelling organisms respond to changes in the physical and chemical environment, the collection of organisms in a stream reach provides a comprehensive indication of the conditions experienced at a particular site.

Three primary biomonitoring programs at Ecology: 1) Ambient Biological –reference sites from eight of Washington’s Level III ecoregions (8‐10 sites in each ecoregion) 2) Sentinel – reference sites sampled annually from 16 sites statewide 3) Watershed Health and Salmon Recovery –randomly.

Through its Ambient Monitoring Program (AMP), WEP is capturing data that is indispensable to answering critical questions about the chemical, physical, and biological nature of Onondaga Lake and its tributaries (Onondaga Creek, Nine Mile Creek, Harbor Brook, Ley Creek, Tributary 5A) as well as the Seneca River system. The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) and its predecessor agency have operated an ambient water quality monitoring program since Between and , the basic program consisted of monthly water quality monitoring for conventional parameters at. Monitoring activities in protected areas have a long history. Internal planning and management needs early led to ecological inventories. More recently the increasing number and awareness of external threats to parks has led to a variety of monitoring by: Washington Department of Transportation and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, Olympia, WA.
