The Forum will consist of a series of meetings held between April 2018 and April 2019 to address nutrient reduction efforts. The Forum will also provide input to the Marine Water Quality Implementation Strategy for the Puget Sound Action Agenda that we are coordinating.
The first meeting will establish a governance structure for the Forum, seek input on the primary issues heard from stakeholders, and discuss timing and expectations for the schedule of Forum meetings over the next 12 months. Subsequent meetings will focus on understanding these issues and developing recommendations. We want your input so that we can collaboratively develop a workable and successful plan to improve water quality and protect the resiliency of Puget Sound.
Please RSVP by April 13th. Email email@example.com. The Project Manager will follow up in mid-April with a detailed agenda for this first meeting along with other information to help participants understand the time commitment over the next year.
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.
