Tips for attending the event

If you can, please register in advance using the registration web links. This helps make sure you have any needed software updates taken care of early so you may participate on time.

Here are some other important tips:

  • We recommend you use the Google Chrome browser when signing in.
  •  Plan to join us 10 minutes or so before the event begins, around 5:20 pm.

Excess nutrients can cause too much plant and algae growth which ultimately depletes dissolved oxygen. Many parts of Puget Sound have oxygen levels that fall below the concentrations needed for marine life to thrive and concentrations that are below the state’s water quality criteria. 

This National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) water quality permit will help control the discharge of nutrients from domestic wastewater treatment plants, following the federal Water Pollution Control Act and state Water Pollution Control laws.
