Puget Sound Coordinated Monitoring and Assessment Program

April 15, 2008 Science Panel Update and Discussion


Problem

Problem

  • Current monitoring isn’t meeting needs

  • Lack of overall integration

  • Regulated community is concerned about increasing monitoring requirements and how data are used

Puget Sound Monitoring Consortium

Control of Toxic Chemicals in Puget Sound Phase I


New business model

New Business Model

  • Bottom-up and top-down approach

  • Recognize and build on existing efforts

  • Look at entire ecosystem

  • Coordinate and track all kinds of monitoring

  • Partner with Science Panel to achieve its mandates

Puget Sound Monitoring Consortium

Control of Toxic Chemicals in Puget Sound Phase I


Proposed functions

Proposed Functions

  • Existing, prioritized activities

  • Cross-topic synthesis

  • GIS and modeling

  • Data management and portals

  • Annual report measuring progress

  • Updates to science/monitoring plans

Puget Sound Monitoring Consortium

Control of Toxic Chemicals in Puget Sound Phase I


Proposed organizational components

Proposed Organizational Components

  • Includes all interested parties

  • Defined links to other entities

  • Ability to commission work

  • Process to gather input

  • Link with larger-geographic area coordination efforts

  • Established science-policy interface

Executive Director & Staff

The Puget Sound Partnership has specific science/monitoring mandates – a cornerstone for a successful coordinated program – primary “client” of the program

Larger-scale State, Pacific Northwest, national monitoring coordination entities

Other existing entities retain their authorities and mandates – key input/links for a successful program – also might be clients of the program

New and existing multi-agency efforts – needed to implement a successful program

Work Groups

* Storm-water

* Hood Canal

* Near-shore

etc.

* These are just examples

A house for the new program

A “House” for the New Program

  • Researched 17 programs nationwide

  • Recognized the role the legislature gave to the Partnership

  • Narrowed down to 2 possibilities that can easily be implemented here:

    • A Restructured PSAMP at PSP

    • A Private Institute modeled after SFEI

  • Either model would add value to PSP
