With the addition of Elizabeth, alongside Soundkeeper’s dedicated and talented team, Puget Soundkeeper’s commitment to clean water will not waver, nor will its leadership.
About Puget Soundkeeper
Founded in 1984 as the Puget Sound Alliance (PSA), Soundkeeper was the first grassroots organization to focus exclusively on protecting the marine environment of Puget Sound. Initially, PSA fought successfully for secondary wastewater treatment at West Point in Seattle and a Puget Sound Management Plan. In 1990, following the successful model of the Hudson Riverkeeper in New York, PSA launched the 6th licensed Waterkeeper program in the nation when it hired its first Puget Soundkeeper and began patrolling the waters of the Sound by boat.
Soundkeeper actively patrols the waters of Puget Sound and monitors for pollution. They also enforce the Clean Water Act through legal action.
Puget Soundkeeper’s mission is to protect and preserve the waters of Puget Sound.
They monitor Puget Sound water quality, help set strong policies and regulations that protect our waterways and our health, enforce environmental regulations, engage citizens and businesses in waterway cleanups and recovery projects, educate and involve the public in local water pollution issues, and partner with local and regional groups to advance solutions that protect Puget Sound.
