Northwest Indian Fisheries Commission, the Coordinated Tribal Water Quality Program and the Washington Stormwater Center coordinated to a 2-day Summit on September 20 and 21, 2018 Understanding the Effects of Stormwater Pollution and Developing Solutions. The summit was designed to help participants develop an increased understanding of stormwater and its effects on fish and other aquatic resources. The summit provided a comprehensive overview that puts stormwater in an opportunistic focus, from a regulatory, practical, and solutions-driven perspective.

Participants were provided current information on stormwater research and how to practically apply that research to place-based problem solving from local scientists and stormwater/salmon experts. This web page provides copies of the Summit presentations and links to resources discussed at the Summit.
