Description This is a February 2011 update about the Department of Ecology’s Puget Sound Toxics Loading Study. It builds on earlier work in Puget Sound helping us know where the toxic chemicals are coming from so we can take actions to control them and help restore Puget Sound and the fresh waters flowing into Puget Sound. When finalized, the overall study findings will help us target the biggest problems with a focus on pollution source control and prevention.
