The perception of Puget Sound as a relatively pristine water body has changed in the last few years, and the need for increasingly coordinated and effective management effort is becoming recognized. Jones and Stokes Associates was retained by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Washington State Department of Ecology (WDOE) to evaluate the existing data base and the water quality management tools available to water quality planners and managers. This report identifies and describes the roles of existing water quality management agencies, and identifies data that are needed to evaluate present environmental conditions and predict impacts resulting from water quality regulatory programs and management decisions. The report describes data obtained by previous and ongoing work in view of the data that are needed.
