Puyallup / White Local Area
The Puyallup-White River Local Integrating Organization
The Puyallup-White River LIO, or PWR-LIO, formed in late 2018 and is in the process of developing an Ecosystem Recovery Plan in 2020.
The PWR LIO brings together diverse groups and communities to apply local knowledge and expertise to the many challenges facing the Puyallup-White River Watershed (WRIA 10) on its path to recovery.
In December of 2018, the Puyallup River Watershed Council was recognized by the Puget Sound Partnership as the sponsor for the Puyallup-White River Local Integrating Organization. Beginning in 2019, we are conducting outreach, inviting participation, and collaborating to develop an Ecosystem Recovery Plan for our watershed. Once the written plan is completed, we will work with PWR-LIO partners and Near Term Action owners to implement the plan, which serves as a catalyst for the recovery of the Puyallup-White River watershed, and thereby Puget Sound. Eventually, the Ecosystem Recovery Plan will inform future iterations of the Action Agenda for Puget Sound Recovery.
Participation: In April 2019, Allan Warren was elected Chair of both the PWR-LIO and the Technical Advisory Committee. Current participation includes: City of Tacoma, City of Sumner, Tacoma Pierce County Health Department, Pierce County, Pierce Conservation District, WSU Washington Stormwater Center, Puyallup Watershed Initiative, Forterra, Rainier and Tahoma Audubon Societies.
Participation is open to all. General Meetings will be held at the Pierce Conservation District offices from 3:00-5:00pm at 308 West Stewart Ave, in Puyallup on: (participating online via Zoom will be an option) March 12, June 11, September 10, and November 12.
