Projected increases in population and development in northeastern Jefferson County, Washington, are expected to lead to increased groundwater withdrawals in the Chimacum Creek Basin. Changes in land use and climate could reduce groundwater recharge, thereby reducing groundwater available for drinking and for baseflow to streams that host endangered fish species.

The USGS is developing quantitative tools to help decision makers and water-resources managers assess the impact of different water-management options in order to plan for future growth and development in ways that minimize adverse impacts on Chimacum Creek.
