Description The “Status and Trends in Receiving Waters” element of the Regional Stormwater Monitoring Program (RSMP) contains nearshore marine monitoring focused on urban growth areas (UGAs) along the Puget Sound shoreline. The goal of this element is to measure changes in the Puget Lowland streams and Puget Sound urban shoreline areas as a result of stormwater management. Towards this goal, bacteria data from 2010-2015 were assessed to conduct a data and gap analysis of existing marine bacteria monitoring programs in Puget Sound. In addition, recommendations were made for bacteria status and trends monitoring in Puget Sound.
