Stormwater Management

“Stormwater runoff plays a major role, both directly and indirectly, in the declining health of Puget Sound (PSAT, 2005). Stormwater degrades habitat, affects aquatic environments, and contributes to flooding. It is considered by the Washington State Department of Ecology to be the biggest water pollution problem in the urban areas of Washington State.”
