Clallam County Environmental Health and its project partners will hold an open house regarding the Pollution Identification and Correction Project updates from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, June 23 at the Dungeness Schoolhouse.

The public is invited to attend the meeting at the schoolhouse, 2781 Towne Road.

The meeting will be an informal format during which those interested can ask questions directly to representatives from county environmental health, and its partners the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe, Clallam Conservation District and Streamkeepers of Clallam County.

Displays and literature on project highlights will be available, as well as water quality monitoring and results.

Information about financial and technical assistance for eliminating sources of pollution will be available for landowners who are interested in participating in the project.

More information about expansion plans will also be presented during the open house.

The four-hour block was selected so those with busy schedules have an opportunity to attend the open house, Environmental Health said in a press release.

The project began during the summer of 2015 in the lower Dungeness watershed, and includes such areas as Golden Sands Slough, Meadowbrook Slough and Creek, and the Dungeness River to address the fecal pollution problems associated with failing septic systems and animal waste, according to the county’s website.

Due to continued success, the project will expand to include waters further along the Dungeness River, into the Matriotti watershed, according to the website.
