In case you missed it the first time around, click on the image above to view a recording of the online event: Can Recycled Water Help Save Salmon in the Sammamish? This virtual panel was part of the on-going series of Community Education programs presented by the Sammamish Valley Grange in Woodinville.

Video description:

Have you ever eaten lettuce purchased from the grocery store? If so, you are more than likely to have eaten California produce grown with recycled water.

For years, recycled water has been used in other states – such as California – as a sustainable irrigation source for edible food crops but it is not yet widely being used for the same purpose here in Washington. Could it be?

Learn how Washington Water Trust and partners are exploring recycled water as a food crop irrigation source in the Sammamish Valley and how it could benefit salmon in the Sammamish and beyond.

Presenters include: Washington Water Trust staff, and University of Washington Associate Professor Ed Kolodziej (co-senior author of the recent study linking coho mortality to car tires).
