Project Description:

The mission of Twin Harbors Waterkeeper (THW) is to protect and improve water quality in the Chehalis River Watershed, Grays Harbor Estuary and Willapa Bay Watershed. In order to achieve this mission TWH has three goals: 1) stop illegal water pollution; 2) prevent new sources of water pollution; and, 3) stop toxic discharges to water from historically contaminated sites.

The goal of the proposed project is to work to achieve these goals specifically in the Chehalis River Watershed and Grays Harbor Estuary. In order to achieve these goals THW has a number of objectives and strategies including permit compliance review, field inspections, on-the-water patrols, pollution hotline, and legal actions including permit appeals and Clean Water Act litigation.
