Puget Sound Nutrient Forum

Puget Sound Nutrient Source Reduction

Aug. 7, 2019, 10 a.m.

At the August meeting, a variety of speakers will present on costs, creative solutions, and funding opportunities for nutrient management in Puget Sound. We will also continue our discussion on nutrient controls at wastewater treatment plants and different permitting approaches.

We want your input so that we can understand your primary issues and collaboratively develop a workable and successful plan to improve water quality and protect the resiliency of Puget Sound. We have been hosting the Puget Sound Nutrient Forum to address nutrient reduction efforts since 2018.

Puget Sound water quality is changing due to excessive levels of nutrients from human sources that are adversely affecting the nation's second largest marine estuary. Monitoring data has identified many places throughout Puget Sound that are impaired for dissolved oxygen. 

The Puget Sound Nutrient Source Reduction Project helps us work collaboratively with communities, stakeholders, and those already working to manage Puget Sound to address human sources of nutrients. This work focuses regional investments to control nutrients from point and non-point sources to help Puget Sound meet dissolved oxygen (DO) water quality criteria.
