Description Despite a La Niña system, precipitation has been lower since March, leaving only snow-fed rivers running high. Due to lower rainfall and warm summer temperatures, the salinity of Puget Sound was generally higher.

Strong summer algae blooms and large patches of organic material and macro-algae are building up in many places and are washing onto beaches. This beach wrack can harbor increased bacteria numbers on hot summer days, when tidal mudflats and beaches are very warm.
