Volunteers can help monitor health of our waters

The Mussel Watch Program is a nation-wide water-quality monitoring program run by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

In Washington, monitoring of Puget Sound is administered by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW).
