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.

For more information about shoreline management plans and how to get involved, visit the Department of Ecology's web page.
