PIC PILOT IMPLEMENTATION PROJECT
In 2014, Clallam Conservation District led the effort to develop a PIC plan that lays out the strategy for identifying and correcting sources of water pollution in the Sequim Bay-Dungeness Watershed Clean Water District (see below for more information on PIC). The PIC plan is being pilot tested in the lower Dungeness watershed.
Staff from partner agencies will be collecting water samples and testing them for fecal bacteria. When high bacteria levels are detected, staff will work to identify and correct the sources of the bacteria. Some common sources of fecal bacteria include septic systems, manure from livestock, and pet and wildlife waste. Technical and financial assistance will be provided to help correct sources of contamination.
POLLUTION IDENTIFICATION AND CORRECTION (PIC)
The goal of the PIC plan is to better coordinate both water quality monitoring and clean-up efforts among area agencies and organizations. The PIC plan includes a water quality monitoring plan to identify specific problems caused by nonpoint source pollution, measures to identify and correct pollution sources, coordination of outreach and education efforts, a clear definition of when and how enforcement action should be taken, and a plan for stable funding.
