Protecting Public Health and the Environment.

Mason Creek Watershed Advisory Group (WAG)

WAGs are groups of interested citizens that provide local public input and guidance to DEQ during the development of water quality improvement plans or TMDLs for water bodies that fail to meet water quality standards. TMDLs are designed to reduce the levels of pollutants, such as bacteria and sediment, in impaired water bodies.

The Mason Creek WAG was formed to develop and implement TMDLs to improve water quality in Mason Creek. DEQ will consult with WAG participants on a regular basis throughout the TMDL development and/or 5-year review process.

Sediment and Bacteria TMDLs

The sediment and bacteria TMDLs will be combined into a single, comprehensive lower Boise River tributary TMDL process, which would be completed in cooperation with the lower Boise Watershed Council. For updates, go to the Lower Boise River WAG page.
