  • Hopeful Solutions to Threats from Stormwater

    "If you build it they will come." This was the approach used to help promote salmon restoration in the Pacific Northwest. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service worked with a variety of partners to remove fish barriers and find ways of addressing many other issues that get in the way of having healthy stream corridors.These efforts successfully restored physical habitat, allowing salmon to once again inhabit the streams in and around urban areas of Puget Sound. 

    Check out "Solving Stormwater", a short video summarizing the long-term study that yielded down-to-earth solutions to this significant problem for people, wildlife and the ecosystems on which all Puget Sound residents depend.
