Water Quality Benefit Evaluation Toolkit
Scientists and experts throughout the central Puget Sound region continue to improve our understanding of what the greatest threats are now to water quality and habitat. This growing body of science must help guide our actions.
We’ve worked with scientists from universities, regulatory agencies, and cities to develop a toolkit, known as the Water Quality Benefit Evaluation. This tool compares potential investments and costs by how well they reduce pollutants to achieve specific goals, such as:
- Edible fish
- Shellfish harvesting
- More chinook salmon
- More fish for southern resident orcas
The toolkit is available to decision-makers throughout the region so we can all base our investments the latest science.
