Good water quality means good quality of life.
Everyone needs access to safe and reliable water.
We take water samples on Lake Tapps and several Puget Sound beaches. When conditions are unsafe, we issue advisories to protect people from getting sick. We also identify and correct sources of pollution in sensitive areas.
The health of your environment affects your quality of life.
Health starts where we live, learn, work and play. You can help protect your health by protecting your water, food, air and soil.
You can help protect and improve the quality of our lakes, streams and Puget Sound:
- Pick up pet waste.
- Use lawn chemicals responsibly.
- Maintain your septic system.
