Puget Sound Coordinated Monitoring


An integrated, coordinated monitoring and assessment program for Puget Sound is needed to provide credible and useful information about the Puget Sound ecosystem and guide the Puget Sound Partnership’s, Ecology’s, and others’ monitoring efforts and improve our policy and management decisions.

The Puget Sound Partnership is creating a coordinated ecosystem monitoring and assessment program. Scott Redman is the monitoring program coordinator. The Steering Committee held its first meeting in June 2011, adopted a charter, bylaws and work plan, and has formally established the program with numerous topical workgroups, including stormwater.

As part of the new program, Ecology provides staff and support to the Stormwater Work Group (SWG). The SWG was formed in 2008 to set priorities and fill key gaps in knowledge and understanding of stormwater impacts and effectiveness of stormwater management programs and approaches in Puget Sound. The SWG coordinates with other topical workgroups to help ensure complementary planning and priorities across related subject areas including monitoring streams, marine nearshore areas, and toxics.
