With local and state budgets stretched thin, what can we do to clean up stormwater pollution that threatens the health of Puget Sound? Can cleaning polluted runoff help—not hamper—our economy?

These topics and more will be discussed next Wednesday (March 23) at a public forum and panel discussion in Olympia. Sightline’s Lisa Stiffler will be a panelist, and the event will feature William Ruckelshaus, former chair of the Puget Sound Partnership Leadership Council; Josh Baldi of the Washington Department of Ecology; and Grant Nelson from the Association of Washington Business.

Where: Capitol Campus in Olympia, Room B/C, John Cherberg Building

When: Noon-1:15 pm (light lunch provided)

Format: Panel discussion/Q-and-A followed by moderator-led interaction with audience members.
