It’s winter indeed. And that means more of the sometimes exciting, sometimes unbearable, winter weather that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. West of the Cascade Mountains winter means rain, wind storms, snow, rain, fog, rain, black ice, and more rain.
Storms can disrupt our day-to-day routines but that’s no reason to let down the effort to be eco-friendly neighbors and protect Puget Sound.
The efforts DNR is making to help restore the Sound to health that will continue into 2013 include:
- Removing creosote laden pilings from nearshore habitat
- Encouraging property owners to use ‘green’ bulkheads
- Removing derelict vessels that leak hazardous debris and chemicals into the water
- Reducing and removing outfalls that drain toxins and waste into the Sound
As steward of state-owned aquatic lands, DNR manages 2.6 million acres of these lands on behalf of the people of Washington.
