going local

We say we want

  • vibrant local economies
  • healthy neighborhoods and downtown areas, and
  • less sprawl into our outlying green spaces—

WA State Dept. of Ecology – Public Comment Period

“The majority of our concerns about toxics come not from big pipes but from the every-day chemicals in our environment. We are working with business, local government, and tribes on a proposal to prevent the use of largely unregulated toxic chemicals the Clean Water Act cannot address,” said Gov.

Prevention is the more effective way to protect Washington’s people and environment.”

Department of Ecology is making details of the preliminary draft fish consumption rule available for early review.
