The WAG concludes & Phase II is complete!

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:

  1. built and strengthened partnerships among the many stakeholders working in the watershed;
  2. documented a strong baseline of information about the air, land and water conditions in the watershed;
  3. improved coordination of the substantial number of projects and programs underway in the watershed;
  4. identified areas where more work is needed;
  5. proposed strategies to address these priority areas; and
  6. 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.
