Polluted runoff from our city streets is the equivalent of an Exxon Valdez oil spill in slow motion - the implications for Puget Sound and our ocean are that harmful.

We know what to do to address polluted runoff - retrofit urban streets, dig storm ponds, build better storm drains, and encourage low-impact development. To complete these stormwater projects on a scale that will make a difference we need to pass the Working for Clean Water bill. By taxing the pollutants that are harming our waters, this bill provides a long-term source of funding for desperately needed stormwater infrastructure projects.

Can't make it to Olympia? Then please Email or call your legislators right now and ask them to support Working for Clean Water.
