What is the Lacamas Creek Partnership for Clean Water?

The Lacamas Creek watershed is on Washington State's polluted waters list for warm water temperatures, bacteria, dissolved oxygen, and pH impairments, which drives the need to develop a Water Cleanup Plan. To develop this plan, the Lacamas Creek Partnership will work collaboratively with local, state, federal, and tribal governments, non-profits, watershed groups, and private landowners to develop and implement a Water Cleanup Plan, focused on implementation of best management practices (BMPs) for water quality. The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) will lead the Lacamas Creek Partnership for Clean Water. Supporting partners are Clark County, City of Camas, Washington State Department of Agriculture, Clark Conservation District, and the United State Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (USDA NRCS).

Lacamas Creek Watershed Monitoring Results

Ecology is currently collecting bacteria samples across the Lacamas Creek watershed to find current sources of pollution and evaluate how bacteria levels have changed since 2010. This monitoring will continue from June to October 2021. View and download the latest bacteria data from Ecology's Lacamas Creek Source Assessment.

Ecology is also collecting water quality samples and measurements at Lacamas Creek right above Lacamas Lake. This monitoring includes sampling for bacteria and nutrients (e.g. phosphorus) and will continue from October 2020 to September 2022. See the latest water quality data at Ecology's Lacamas Creek Ambient Station.
