The peninsula is home to the Key Peninsula-Gig Harbor-Islands Watershed Council or KGI for short. The area includes Gig Harbor, Longbranch and Key Peninsulas, as well as Anderson, Ketron, McNeil, and Fox Islands. Attending an upcoming meeting or field trip is a great way to get involved with your local Watershed Council, meet neighbors, and share concerns and knowledge of environmental issues affecting your watershed. Watershed Councils meet regularly to identify problems, develop plans and implement projects that aim to reduce and prevent water quality impacts from nonpoint sources of pollution. These sources included on-site septic systems, agriculture, forest practices, boats, stormwater, and other pollution sources.
Watershed Councils are great venues for networking, information sharing, and coordination. By participating, you can bring additional background, local knowledge, and skills to the table. Everyone is welcome to attend!
