Samish Bay Questions and Answers 

Results of Skagit County's Microbial Source Tracking project in the Samish Basin
SKAGIT COUNTY - On September 8, 2011 Skagit County personnel and invited experts presented the preliminary findings from the County's Microbial Source Tracking project in the Samish Basin. This project was designed to help determine sources of fecal coliform bacteria in the Samish Basin. 
The Samish Bay suffers from severe fecal coliform bacteria pollution issues. Bacteria in the Samish River, other streams, and the bay often reach levels too high for safe shellfish harvest, recreation, and food production. In recent years, this problem has become the focus of the Clean Samish Initiative. The problem has also attracted the attention of federal, state, and county environmental inspectors as they pursue cleaner water and safer shellfish in the bay.
