Description Low dissolved oxygen (DO) levels have been observed throughout the Salish Sea, and recent studies have shown that nutrient inputs from anthropogenic sources influence these low DO events in Puget Sound. This work is the first in a series of technical studies to inform the Puget Sound Nutrient Source Reduction Project (PSNSRP). The PSNSRP is an effort to guide regional investments in nutrient reductions with the goal of meeting Washington State marine water quality standards for DO in Puget Sound.
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.
