Description During 2011-2018, the Washington State Department of Ecology is serving as the lead organization for a National Estuary Program (NEP) cooperative agreement entitled “Toxics and Nutrients Prevention, Reduction, and Control.” Roughly $10.6 million for Puget Sound was spent on toxics control efforts.

A total of 59% of the toxics funds continued or improved management of existing pollutant sources, 27% funded toxics research, and 14% supported innovative prevention projects.

This report summarizes the toxics projects, comparing them to recommendations made in the 2011 “Assessment of Selected Toxic Chemicals in the Puget Sound Basin” report.

The Report and Appendix are linked above as PDF files.
