Water quality in the Central Columbia Plateau of eastern Washington and western Idaho has been adversely affected by agriculture, especially in irrigated areas, according to the results of a five-year investigation by the U. Geological Survey (USGS).

Some improvements, however, are noticeable, such as less sediment being washed into streams. The Columbia Plateau covers more t square miles within the Columbia River Basin in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho (fig.

The Columbia Plateau ecoregion is a Level III ecoregion designated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) encompassing approximat square miles (83, km 2) of land within the U.S. states of Washington, Oregon, and ecoregion extends across a wide swath of the Columbia River Basin from The Dalles, Oregon to Lewiston, Idaho to Okanogan, Washington near the Borders: Eastern Cascades Slopes and Foothills.

The Central Columbia Plateau/Yakima River Basin (CCYK) National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) study unit is located in Central Washington, USA. The study unit is dominated by intensive agricultural practices, with irrigated agriculture a common practice for crop production (see study area description).

Due to the intensive. The National Water Quality Assessment (NAWQA) program is first and foremost a provider of information to parties interested in water quality. While most of the NAWQA budget and effort is devoted to data collection and interpretation, it is the reporting of the program’s findings that is most critical for its widespread use and the program’s ultimate success.

The Columbia Plateau Aquifer system is a series of layered aquifers across ~44, mi 2 of Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The aquifer system is on the Columbia Plateau, contained within the Cascades, Rocky Mountains, Okanogan Highlands, and the Blue Mountains.

These aquifers are bounded on the bottom by a layer of Miocene basaltic rock that can be up to 15, ft thick. This is your direct link to all kinds of water resource information. Here you'll find information on Washington's rivers and streams.

You'll also find information about groundwater, water quality, and many other topics. The USGS operates the most extensive satellite network of stream-gaging stations in the state, many of which form the backbone of flood-warning systems.

The Columbia River is the largest river in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. The river rises in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia, flows northwest and then south into the US state of Washington, then turns west to form most of the border between Washington and the state of Oregon before emptying into the Pacific Ocean.
