Toxic runoff from our roads is the number one water pollutant in the state. Right now, we have the opportunity to better protect our rivers, lakes, and Sound. A number of cities in King County are completing updates to their shoreline management plans. Futurewise reviews the cities' drafts and provided written comments to city planners and councils.
