Stormwater Pollution and Transportation

The number one source of petroleum and other toxic chemicals that end up in the Puget Sound is non-industrial pollutants; that’s cars, parking lots, and other household chemicals. Join us, as we explore how can we keep water clean by using alternative transportation options. For the 8th year, the 2018 Friday Forum Series will focus on the connection between our changing City, the surrounding environment, and the people who are most affected by these shifts.

On Feb. 23, 2018 from Noon – 1 p.m., Tanisha Jumper, Program Manager for Tacoma 2025 and Acting Director of Media & Communications at the City of Tacoma, will moderate a discussion with Jessica Knickerbocker, City of Tacoma stormwater expert, Melissa Malott, Executive Director of Citizens for a Healthy Bay, and students studying stromwater from Annie Wright School at Urban Grace.

Thank you to GeoEngineers for sponsoring this event!

This forum is part a four-part series that will investigate other topics that include:

  • Equity & Environment (Mar 30)
  • Parking, People, and Development (Apr 27)

Forums are free and open to the public. Thank you to Puget Sound Starts Here for supporting our work and elevating the conversation around stormwater, transportation, and equity.
