People For Puget Sound

For nearly 30 years, People For Puget Sound and WEC worked together to protect the Sound. In 2012, People For Puget Sound became a program of WEC. Together we helped establish the Puget Sound Partnership, ensured that the Department of Ecology adopted stronger permits to curb polluted runoff, secured some of the nation’s strongest oil spill prevention and response safeguards for marine waters, updated the Shoreline Management Act, pushed for statewide funding of clean water projects and toxic cleanups, and much more.
