The Capitol Record

On ‘The Impact’ — updated election numbers, plus the health of Puget Sound

Tonight’s edition of “The Impact” will have the latest update on election results.

Plus, a partnership set up by the state Legislature in 2007 to coordinate efforts to restore the Puget Sound released a report earlier this month on the “State of the Sound.”

The bad news: Killer whales and chinook have been on the decline since 2007. Herring stocks and eelgrass beds are also not improving, and the water quality is getting worse.

The good news is that the number of healthy shellfish beds and restored estuaries are up.

State and federal agencies have spent $230 million dollars a year on restoring the Puget Sound since 2008.
