Climate Change in the Pacific Northwest website
A website on climate change for the Pacific Northwest has been developed by the Pacific Northwest Water Program. It is designed to mainly act as a portal to climate change information for the Pacific Northwest. It has information on climate change and there is a page for each state plus topic areas that may be relevant to more than one state. There are RSS feeds on each state page and a regional announcement page.
Just go to www.pnwwaterweb.com and click on the climate change link under what's new.
Publications on Septic Systems
Septic systems can pose a potential health threat if not maintained properly or due to a flood. In 2008 the Water Quality Program created two publications on septic systems with a grant from the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation.

Domestic Water Use: A Resource Guide for Extension
Pacific Northwest educators and extension personnel are frequently called upon to answer questions or concerns regarding drinking water. In an effort to meet the needs of our districts and to assist extension personnel in the ease of finding information, the PNW region has produced "Domestic Water Use: A Resource Guide for Extension." You can download the PDF file here or an informational PDF flyer here.
