Description This document provides an update to the earlier focus sheet on Bioretention Soil Media. Ecology needs to produce this update following new research on Bioretention Soil Media and questions from permittees.

Ecology began reviewing local, preliminary monitoring data from the city of Redmond, city of Tacoma, and Washington State University (WSU). Ecology reviewed the data to determine if an addendum to Ecology’s bioretention guidance is necessary.
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.
