Executive Director of Sound Action, Amy Carey, explains why orcas need soft shorelines in Puget Sound. House Bill 1579, if passed, will protect shorelines through the revision of HPA (hydraulic project approval) process for construction in waters.
Sound Action has spent countless hours watchdogging every marine HPA and fighting to ensure shorelines are protected. This fix in permitting could make significant improvements for fish and orcas.
