WA189 - Water Resources Of The Port Madison Indian Reservation, Washington - Completed FY1979
Problem - The Reservation and adjacent areas are developing rapidly with a corresponding increase in water use due to construction of a new submarine base at nearby Bangor, Washington. The Tribe needs background hydrologic data to develop and protect its own water supplies.
Objectives - Describe the water resources of the Reservation in terms of quantity, quality, and areal distribution so that the Tribe will have the information necessary to properly develop, manage, and conserve their water resources.
Approach - Basic data will be collected and a report written to summarize the findings. The collection of basic data will include a well inventory; low flow measurements; coliform, nutrient, and turbidity analyses; observation wells; and ground-water quality analyses.
