We are students from Washington State University and are conducting this survey to assist the City of Puyallup and the Washington State University Puyallup Research and Extension Center. The results from this survey will be used for our class project and to help plan strategies for improving the waters of DeCoursey Pond. DeCoursey Pond is under inspection for its very high and unhealthy levels of duck fecal coliform. In hopes of avoiding sanctions on DeCoursey Pond and preventing further harm to the local fish population, the Washington State University Puyallup Research and Extension Center is studying ways to reduce the levels of fecal coliform in the pond. The purpose of this survey is to gain an understanding of why people are feeding the ducks at DeCoursey Pond in Puyallup, WA. All responses to this survey will remain confidential.
