We completed our final Watershed Advisory Group (WAG) meeting on April 5, 2017, which also marks the conclusion of Phase II of Our Green/Duwamish. Since 2014, we have made progress towards improving the environment and health of the Green/Duwamish watershed. With help and collaboration from the WAG we have:
- built and strengthened partnerships among the many stakeholders working in the watershed;
- documented a strong baseline of information about the air, land and water conditions in the watershed;
- improved coordination of the substantial number of projects and programs underway in the watershed;
- identified areas where more work is needed;
- proposed strategies to address these priority areas; and
- enhanced our collective sense of watershed identity.
Thank you to the WAG and all of the participants in helping to make this project a success.
