On Jan. 12, 2015, Ecology issued a formal draft rule that updates to the state’s Water Quality Standards for toxics, including an updated fish consumption rate. The draft rule is directly tied to a toxics reduction package Governor Inslee will propose to the 2015 Legislature. The package will address broader pollution challenges that the Clean Water Act alone can’t solve. The proposed package lays the groundwork to better protect Washington’s people, its waters, and its economy. Kelly Susewind will provide an overview of the rule and comment on the strategy of the toxics reduction package during the 2015 legislative session.

Kelly Susewind joined the Department of Ecology 24 years ago after working as a consulting engineer for several years. He entered the agency as a staff engineer and has progressively taken on increasing levels of responsibility. Most recently, he managed the agency’s Water Quality Program before being promoted to his current position as Special Assistant to Director Maia Bellon. He earned a degree in Geological Engineering from Washington State University and holds licenses in civil engineering, geology and hydrogeology.
