Abstract: In December 1986, following public hearings on a draft plan, the Puget Sound Water Quality Authority adopted the Puget Sound Water Quality Management Plan. The plan is comprehensive, with major programs for nonpoint sources, municipal and industrial sources, stormwater, contaminated sediments, shellfish and wetland protection, and public education and information. Other plan elements deal with monitoring, research, and laboratory certification. Existing state and local agencies are responsible for implementation of the plan. The Authority works to assure compliance with the plan and provides oversight and technical assistance.
