In past years, numerous ships, barges, and aircraft potentially containing various kinds of hazardous cargo and large amounts of fuel and oil have sunk in Puget Sound and adjacent waters. Some of the cargo, fuel and oil, if present in sufficient quantities could pose a hazard to human health or the aquatic environment. Vessels of interest include commercial transport and military vessels over 50 tons gross weight (greater than 100 feet in length) that sank after 1915, and all commercial and military aircraft. Thirty-seven sources of information were investigated including state and federal government agencies, public port associations, maritime organizations, historical archives, and individuals. Using information from these sources, a list of 134 sunken vessels and aircraft were compiled.
