Abstract:
The Washington State Department of Ecology has conducted marine water quality monitoring at a number of stations in Puget Sound, Grays Harbor and Willapa Bay since 1973. About 40 stations are monitored each year on a monthly basis. Some stations are monitored every year while some are monitored on a rotating schedule. Parameters monitored include profiles of temperature, salinity, density, dissolved oxygen, light transmission, pH, as well as discrete samples at various depths for fecal coliform bacteria, chlorophyll a, phaeopigment, nitrate, nitrite, ammonium, orthophosphate, silicate and Secchi disk depth. Generally samples were taken at 0, 10, and 30 meters depth. The monitoring data are used to assess marine water quality. Summary analyses show relative water quality concern and sensitivity to eutrophication for sites within Puget Sound. The latest edition of Washington State Marine Water Quality report can be viewed or downloaded for more information. Information was obtained from "http://www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/eap/mar_wat/mwm_intr.html and from Jan Newton."
