Sustainability Ambassadors: Toxics in Stormwater Pollution
Jenifer McIntyre, Research Scientist with the WSU Stormwater Center, describes the current science on the toxic chemicals entering Puget Sound from polluted storm water runoff with a focus on the susceptibility of aquatic animals like salmon. Current research on rain garden soil filtration points to solutions for reducing these toxics, leaving cleaner water with less impact on fish. Watch her video here.
WSU Puyallup's Jennifer McIntyre's research is highlighted in the NY Times
Storm runoff can be toxic to aquatic life, but a new study suggests a simple and relatively inexpensive solution: Filter the water through dirt before it enters streams, rivers or the ocean.
Researchers collected runoff from a busy four-lane highway in Seattle during six storms in 2011 and 2012. They tested the toxicity of water from the first five storms and found that coho salmon fry could not survive in it, nor could the mayfly and water flea larvae they feed on.
