Keep the beaches swimmable, fishable, and diggable
The Vashon-Maury shoreline provides value to the community in swimming, beach walks, fishing, boating, and shellfish harvesting.
Shellfish growing areas have been downgraded, water quality has declined, and fecal pollution from humans and animals is of grave concern.
Pollution sources can impact property owners resulting in costly repairs, property damage and liability.
By working together, we have already fixed many pollution sources.
