Lower Yakima River
Benton Conservation District hosts the Lower Yakima Water Quality & Habitat Monitoring Group. The goal of this work group is to coordinate resources across multiple organizations to focus on water quality and habitat improvement in the Lower Yakima River. Local, state, federal, tribal and non-profit entities participate. Members share information about current projects and funding sources, seek input to monitoring plans or project proposals, evaluate data and help develop priorities for future work. Financial support is provided by the Washington State Department of Ecology.
