For 12 years, June has been proclaimed Orca Awareness Month by the Governor of Washington. In celebration of our iconic resident orcas and to raise awareness of the threats they face, RE Sources is co-hosting a kayak tour of Bellingham Bay with Moondance Sea Kayak Adventures, offering a perspective of Bellingham Bay that can’t be seen from land. Attendees will visit sites that illuminate the history of Bellingham Bay, its historic contamination, cleanup and habitat improvement opportunities, and how our local bay plays a role in the health of the Salish Sea and its endangered orca population. Click here to register and for event details. Read more here about Orca Month.

Public Comment Periods

Looking for information about public comment periods for cleanup plans or pollution permits in Washington state? 
Visit our Water Quality Permits page for more information.

In Washington, pollution permits are issued under the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and regulated by the state Department of Ecology. When permits come up for review, citizens can participate in the public process and comment on the details of the permit, calling for stronger environmental regulations where necessary.
