Title Ecological indicators of water quality in the Spokane River, Idaho and Washington, 1998 and 1999
Creator MacCoy, Dorene E.; Maret Terry R.
Subject Water quality; Ecological risk assessment; Water chemistry; Sediments (Geology) -- Analysis; Aquatic ecology; Pollutants
Spatial Coverage Columbia River; Washington; Idaho
Description A water-quality investigation of the Spokane River was completed during summer low-flow conditions in 1998 and 1999 as part of the USGS National Water-Quality Assessment Program, in cooperation with the Washington State Department of Ecology. Samples for analyses of water chemistry; bed sediment; aquatic communities (fish, macroinvertebrates, and algae); contaminants in tissue (fish and macroinvertebrates); and associated measures of habitat were collected at six sites downstream from Coeur d'Alene Lake between river miles 63 and 100. These data provided baseline information to evaluate the water-quality status of the Spokane River and can be used to determine the ecological risk to aquatic organisms from contaminants.
