Sailboat Regatta Commencement Bay Puget Sound Downtown Port Taco

Sailboat Regatta Commencement Bay of Puget Sound

•    Super huge fresh water projects will reduce water quality in Commencement Bay, with subsequent adverse impacts to aquatic life.
•    “Threats to the Green River water supply affect the economy, natural ecosystem and unique culture of the Pacific Northwest. The Green River watershed is relied upon not only by the City of Tacoma, but by many other species as well, including threatened Chinook salmon, a key food for Orcas. Substantially lowering river water levels could have harmful consequences for these culturally iconic species and the Puget Sound ecosystem.” (source: Citizens for a Healthy Bay website)
•    Additional marine vessel traffic in ecologically fragile Puget Sound.
