King County Executive Dow Constantine and City of Seattle Mayor Ed Murray are teaming up with the Bullitt Foundation and the Green Futures Lab to develop a strategy to build healthy communities, create more economic opportunity, and reduce air and water pollution in the Green/Duwamish watershed (WRIA 9).

The goal is to better coordinate work already being done at the local, state, and federal levels to manage habitat restoration, salmon recovery, flood control, public health, waste site cleanups, economic development, open space preservation, and more. While several agencies already oversee these priorities, there is currently no framework to coordinate programs or projects. This is a critical gap that needs to be addressed.

Work begins in September 2014. King County will also be hosting a website that engages watershed stakeholders and chronicles the efforts. Click below to learn more about this exciting partnership.
