Toxics in Puget Sound: Building Solutions

Please join the Stormwater Strategic Initiative Lead Team and its speakers and collaborators to discuss our first solutions-oriented workshop to address Toxics in Puget Sound. This will be the first of successive workshops designed to address toxics in Puget Sound. 

Register Here  


This workshop is designed for people who want to contribute to solutions for toxics in Puget Sound including a wide range of policy, regulatory, consumer campaign, product redesign, pollution prevention, and communication campaigns. Please note we will not be addressing the underlying science at this workshop. 

Sketch of the Day 

We will start our day with Rob Bilott, the attorney who awakened the world to PFOS (C8) contamination and damage to communities. His incredible story will lift the spirit and provide energy for positive action in our region. 

While we refine our agenda, we do know we will be addressing problem-solving frameworks in the morning and will gather in break-out groups to discuss solution types. Please note we will be using a combination of Zoom with Mural, an interactive tool. The Washington State Department of Commerce has graciously offered to hold two Mural trainings on Thursday, February 25th.
