Description Ecology and EPA are developing a Pollutant Loading Assessment (PLA) to understand the relationship of water, sediment, and fish tissue quality to the overall health of the Green-Duwamish Watershed. The goal of this assessment is to determine ways to reduce ongoing sources of pollution in the watershed. The PLA will develop a watershed-based computerized model to help people understand what is polluting the river and where it comes from. This tool and future monitoring data will provide information to support cleanup and water quality decision-making in the Green-Duwamish watershed.
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.
