4.2 Watershed-Wide Action Items to Support Implementation of Chambers-Clover Creek Watershed Action Plan
The City also financially supports the Pierce Conservation District Stream Team in its efforts to sample and analyze water from several lakes in Lakewood. This is a long-term, ongoing project, and several more years of data will be necessary before it can be determined if there are any measurable trends in water quality. Remove text shown in strikeout below:
7.2 Priority 2 – Improve Water Quality and Reduce Sediment and Pollutant Delivery
As noted in the Chambers-Clover Creek Watershed Action Plan and other sources, phosphorus and other pollutants from improperly functioning on-site sewage systems (OSS) is a concern in the watershed overall as well as in the immediate vicinity of American Lake and Waughop Lake. [
