Local Source Control Partnership
The Local Source Control (LSC) Partnership focuses directly on assisting small businesses to prevent polluted runoff to Puget Sound and the Spokane River Basin.
The LSC Partnership uses a unique team approach, working with local jurisdictions to preserve urban waters in Washington State through source control. Currently, there are 23 LSC Specialists helping to solve pollution problems and protect urban water quality.
About Source Control By addressing possible causes of pollution at the source of use, technical assistance to small businesses is making a difference. This approach is expected to save businesses money while protecting our state’s water quality.
