Project Title & Description
King County Targeted Watershed Grant
This grant uses multiple approaches and projects to connect land use decisions and watershed protection. Project 1 will evaluate nitrogen in Quartermaster Harbor; identify and quantify sources; and model effectiveness/costs of strategies and practices. Project 2 will study effectiveness of land use regulations at protecting streams by tracking regulatory implementation and changes in land cover, hydrology, water quality, channel complexity and biology. Project 3 will test stewardship tools in sub-basins to create contiguous habitat along ecologically important stream reaches.
