Description The Department of Ecology is evaluating the effects of current and potential future nutrient loads on dissolved oxygen levels in Puget Sound, using a water quality model.

The Puget Sound model will help answer the following questions:

*Are human sources of nutrients in and around Puget Sound significantly impacting water quality?

*How much nutrient reduction is necessary to reduce human impacts in sensitive areas?

The Department of Ecology and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will work collaboratively with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and advisory groups to conduct the nutrient pollution modeling.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
