Water quality for animal ag
WSU has launched an update to the animal agriculture website to meet the educational needs of animal agricultural producers. It includes extensive information on water quality to help livestock producers develop practices to respond to new opportunities, challenges and demands. Click here to visit the water quality page.
The TREES Summit: Toward Renewable Energy and Ecosystem Services was held on April 25, 2017 at the Brightwater Center in Woodinville. Presenters focused on explaining how poplar plantings could be an innovative and important strategy for tackling critical environmental challenges in the Pacific Northwest. During workshop discussions, attendees shared experiences, ideas, and concerns and networked with stakeholders from a variety of disciplines and organizations. The meeting was followed by a tour of a poplar planting at the former Duvall landfill. Click here to view the conference presentations.

Did you know?
You might be surprised at the breadth and depth of WSU research in the area of water. For example, did you know that the WSU Puyallup Low Impact Development (LID) Research Program has one of the largest LID installations in the nation? Researchers there are studying how to treat polluted stormwater using rain gardens and testing permeable pavement in full-scale parking lots.
Whether you are looking for information on the effects of pollutants on salmon, methods to conserve water, how to reduce your impact on water quality, or when it is safe to harvest clams, you have come to the right place.
