The South Fork of Dogfish Creek, along with Big Scandia, Bjorgen and Lemolo creeks, have been listed as priority streams for cleanup under a new water-quality plan for Liberty Bay. The plan, issued by the Washington Department of Ecology, supports ongoing efforts to clean up bacterial pollution in Liberty Bay — including pollution identification and correction projects by the Kitsap Public Health District.
Ecology will hold a public meeting on the cleanup plan Thursday in the Poulsbo Fire Department’s community room, 911 Liberty Bay Road. An open house will begin at 6:15 p.m., followed by a short film at 6:40 p.m. and a discussion at 7 p.m.
The plan and related information can be downloaded from Ecology’s website, www.ecy.wa.gov/programs/wq/tmdl/libertybay. Comments will be taken on the plan until April 15.
