HOW YOU CAN BE A FRIEND OF PUGET SOUND

As a fellow shellfish farmer, we ask that you consider getting involved (if you are not already) to support efforts to keep the marine waters of the state clean and safe for shellfish culture. How?

  • Get involved in local shoreline and growth management planning
  • Maintain your septic system in good working order
  • Collect and dispose of pet waste in areas where it can not wash into surface waters
  • Fence your horses or cows out of streams
  • Recycle used motor oil and dispose of household hazardous wastes at appropriate facilities, not in your yard or septic system.
