Protecting Public Health and the Environment.

Fish Creek Watershed Advisory Group (WAG)

WAGs 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 Fish Creek WAG was formed to develop and implement TMDLs to improve water quality in the Fish Creek watershed, which is contained within the Upper Spokane Subbasin. The Upper Spokane River Subbasin Assessment and Total Maximum Daily Loads developed in 2000 did not directly address excess pollutant loads within the Fish Creek watershed. Therefore, a separate document, entitled Fish Creek Watershed Assessment and Total Maximum Daily Loads, was developed in January 2007, submitted to public comment in early-2008, and approved by EPA in June 2008. An implementation plan is under development.
