The report is the product of a three-state water quality study in the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille Basin. In response to concerns about the growing presence of algae and weeds, Congress appropriated funds to conduct a water quality study in the basin. The Congressional request appears as water quality study in the basin. The Congressional request appears as Section 525 of the 1987 Clean Water Act. The study's main objectives were: (1) characterize water quality problems, (2) identify pollution sources, (3) recommend actions for protecting and restoring water quality throughout the basin. The following water quality objectives were identified: (1) control nuisance algae in the Clark Fork River by reducing nutrient concentrations; (2) protect Lake Pend Oreille water quality by maintaining or reducing current rates of nutrient loading from the Clark Fork River; (3) reduce nearshore eutrophication in Lake Pend Oreille by reducing nutrient loading from local sources; (4) improve Pend Oreille River water quality through macropyhte management and tributary nonpoint source controls. To meet these objectives, the plan outlines specific management actions.
