Status and Trends in Receiving Waters
The goal of the Status and Trends in Receiving Waters element of SAM is to measure changes in the Puget Lowland streams and Puget Sound urban shoreline areas as a result of stormwater management. For the Receiving Waters element of SAM, 81 of 84 eligible Western Washington Phase I and II Municipal Stormwater Permittees chose to participate via the cost sharing program. Washington State Department of Transportation also opted to participate via their permit option in 2014. Two Municipal Stormwater permittees chose to conduct status and trends monitoring in their jurisdictional areas similar to SAM.
