Description This brochure was originally published under the Publication # 08-01-024. Commencement Bay was one of three areas chosen by the
Legislature in 2007 for Washington’s new Urban Waters Initiative. For the Bay, the goal of the Urban Waters Initiative was to prevent new environmental contamination or, recontamination, of sites that already had been cleaned up - an approach called “source control.”
