The Puget Sound Nutrient Source Reduction Project is a collaborative effort with Puget Sound communities and stakeholders to address human sources of nutrients. This work focuses on using the latest science to find the right solutions for regional investments to control nutrients from point and non-point sources. The project objective is to improve Puget Sound water quality to support salmon and orca recovery and increase resiliency to climate impacts.

El proyecto para la reducción de fuentes de nutrientes al Puget Sound es un esfuerzo colaborativo con personas interesadas y comunidades del Puget Sound para abordar las fuentes humanas de nutrientes. Este trabajo se concentra en usar la ciencia más avanzada para que las inversiones regionales puedan encontrar soluciones adecuadas para controlar los nutrientes provenientes de fuentes fijas y no-fijas. El objetivo del proyecto es mejorar la calidad del agua del Puget Sound para sostener la recuperación del salmón y las orcas e incrementar su capacidad de recuperación a los impactos climatológicos.

 Announcement: Preliminary determination to develop a new general permit

We are proposing to develop a Puget Sound Nutrients General Permit. The purpose of the general permit will be to control nutrient discharges from domestic wastewater treatment plants that discharge to marine or estuarine waters of Puget Sound. We are currently requesting comments on the appropriateness of using a general permit to control nutrient discharges. We are accepting comments from Aug. 21, 2019, until 11:59 p.m. on Oct. 21, 2019. You may submit comments online.

For more information on the nutrients problem, the permit proposal, and how to comment, read our focus sheet. We do not currently have draft permit language. If we move forward with a general permit, we will prepare draft permit language and provide it to the public for comment. 

Puget Sound Nutrient Forum

The Puget Sound Nutrient Forum was formed in 2017 as a large public advisory group for the project to discuss, learn, and provide input on how to reduce human sources of nutrients entering Puget Sound. The Forum meets regulary.
