The article (TNT, 5-2) regarding stormwater run off was very enlightening. It showed that we have not been working hard to protect our great Puget Sound.

The research of new ways and products by the Washington State University Extension Service will take protection of the waterways to a new level. Right now the two military ships parked along Ruston Way are seeking permission to add 60 overwater parking spots. All the oil and contaminates will be washed into the bay.

Should they be denied this variance or will we wait and have to pay to clean it up in the future?
