    The goal of the Puget Sound National Estuary Program, i.e., the Puget Sound Partnership, approved Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP) (the Action Agenda) is to restore and maintain the Puget Sound Estuary"s estuarine environment, by , so that it will support balanced indigenous populations of shellfish, fish and. exchange well with the Puget Sound. The Burley Lagoon watershed encompasses an area of approximately 16 square miles. The watershed lies within Pierce and Kitsap Counties. Land use in the watershed is a mixture of rural residential and commercial development. All residential sites in the area use OSS for the treatment and disposal of sewage.

      • Salmon recovery action plans to protect and restore habitat and critical stocks. These have been developed locally and submitted as part of the regional recovery plans for Puget Sound salmon and bull trout • Regional land and watershed management plans including the WRIA 18 watershed plan, applicable.   For example, in Puget Sound the cadre of volunteers helped create the political will that made habitat protection more effective (Pinkerton ). To ensure the usefulness of data, the Chesapeake Bay's program actively recruits volunteers to monitor at the same locations as state scientists, and they also have a quality assurance plan (Campbell.

Within the Puget Sound region, 16 salmon recovery chapter areas are defined. In addition, there are nine local integrating organizations (LIOs) around Puget Sound that coordinate closely with the salmon recovery watersheds to advance priorities as strategies for local ecosystem recovery.

Section ScopeThis section reviews, assesses, and summarizes the potential strategies investigated in past scientific and technical research for positively affecting the watersheds and tributaries draining to Puget Sound.

The review and assessment covers strategies for both protecting resources that remain and recovering or improving resources that have been impaired.

The Puget Sound Action Team has educated more than planners, developers, engineers and others at LID conferences and regional workshops throughout Puget Sound. The Action Team has developed an assortment of educational materials on the subject, such as this publication. A number of other organizations now also offer training on LID.

streams draining rural watersheds in Puget Sound ii Land Use and Water Quality: Mission/Little Mission Creeks representative sites to measure nonpoint pollutant levels and loads and to rank their contribution. One goal of the ranking was to provide a tool with which the County could evaluate their priorities for remedial action.

Nonpoint source pollution generally results from land runoff, precipitation, atmospheric deposition, drainage, seepage or hydrologic modification.

The term “nonpoint source” is defined to mean any source of water pollution that does not meet the legal definition of “point source” in. Significant sources of pollution Nonpoint remedial action in Puget Sound watersheds book Puget Sound are contaminated sites around the basin and its shorelines area.

Funding is provided for projects that integrate shoreline habitat restoration opportunities with cleanup projects to protect public and environmental health, create jobs and promote economic development in the Puget Sound Basin.

It identifies the most important areas, across the entire Sound and within each of the 19 Water Resource Inventory Areas (WRIAs), to protect and restore, and those areas more suitable for development. The Issue: Groundwater discharge to streams and rivers in the Puget Sound basin is the primary source of water for sustaining summer low flows.A robust understanding of how anthropogenic and natural stressors affect summer low flows across the entire Puget Sound Regional Aquifer System is lacking, and USGS has tools and data—including current water-use data and subbasin-scale groundwater.

This project enhanced benthic macroinvertebrate monitoring tools for the Puget Sound region. Restoration Priorities. This project developed a framework for identifying sites and strategies to protect watersheds with "excellent" B-IBI scores or restore watersheds with "fair" B-IBI scores.

Program (RCWP), the Clean Water Act Section National Nonpoint Source Monitoring Program (NNPSMP), and other efforts to provide a state-of-the-reference for monitoring nonpoint source projects. Monitoring plays an important role in addressing the need to evaluate our watershed management efforts.

This program requires the development of watershed action plans in each of the 12 Puget Sound counties. In each county a watershed ranking committee has identified and ranked all watersheds in the county in order of need for corrective action. Now, each watershed management committee starts with the top-ranked watershed and prepares an action plan.

private stakeholders, called the Shared Strategy for Puget Sound, developed a salmon recovery plan. The resulting Puget Sound Salmon Recovery Plan (hereinafter called the Recovery Plan) contained both regional (i.e., Sound-wide, Volume I) and local-scale (i.e., watershed-wide, Volume II) chapters.

Included the creation of the Model Toxics Control Capital Account - State (MCP-1) and Model Toxics Control Stormwater Account - State (MSW-1). Only new investments from MCP-1 and MSW-1 were identified in this table.
