Become a Water Reporter and keep our waters free and clear of pollution! Learn how to recognize and report everyday water contamination, and who to turn to when you see it. Most water pollution starts on land — identifying it is a vital, easy, and dare we say fun way to protect the Salish Sea.
 
We'll introduce the Water Reporter smartphone app and then head outside for a tour of different ways stormwater runs off impervious surfaces, as well as visit a construction site and a rain garden.
 
Dress for the weather! Contact kirstenm@re-sources.org for details or questions. Learn more about the Water Reporter app.
 
We suggest downloading Water Reporter on your phone before you attend. Search for it wherever you download your apps!

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.
