Around the Sound: News to start the week

By Seth Preston, Communications Manager, Toxics Cleanup Program

Let’s start off the new work week with some recent news items related to Puget Sound:
  • The Kitsap Sun has this piece updating a recent oyster kill along Hood Canal.

  • Also from the Kitsap Sun comes news that a local tribe may challenge a developer’s plans for a major project in the Port Gamble area. Port Gamble Bay is one of Ecology’s high-priority bays identified for cleanup under the Puget Sound Initiative.

  • The Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR) sent out this news release about its on-going efforts to remove derelict vessels from Puget Sound waters. Here’s more information about DNR's program.

  • Investigate West, an online publication focusing on investigative journalism, recently took a look at how cruise ships deal with waste while at sea.
