The Implementation Progress Report published in March 2015 highlights accomplishments and news in the Green/Duwamish and Central Puget Sound Watershed since implementation of the WRIA 9 Salmon Habitat Plan began nine years ago. Read how partnerships have made a difference in WRIA 9: Implementation Progress Report.
As the WRIA 9 partners approach ten years of coordinated effort on projects to protect and restore Chinook salmon habitat across the watershed, we celebrate the completion of a number of complex projects and acknowledge that years of important work still lie ahead. See the WRIA 9 factsheets for details on what we've accomplished and where we are headed.
WRIA 9 and the Duwamish Blueprint Working Group have updated the 2006 draft of the Duwamish Blueprint: Salmon Habitat in the Duwamish Transition Zone. The final document is a working draft that intends to provide guidance to governments, businesses, Natural Resource Trustees, and citizen groups as they improve the aquatic ecosystem of the Duwamish estuary. View the Duwamish Blueprint for more information.
