The links on this page provide access to the Washington State Department of Ecology's Air Monitoring Network, which tracks various air pollutants at more than six dozen sites statewide. Visitors can filter and export historic data using the Site Report tool, and gather traffic-specific air pollutant data from the Seattle and Tacoma monitoring sites linked below.
The federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed into law on March 27, 2020, appropriated approximately $2.95 billion to state and local governments in Washington state, to help fund the response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The Washington state Office of Financial Management webpage, linked below, provides further details about distribution of CARES funding.
The Washington Geological Survey’s simplified volcanic
hazards database is adapted from a U.S. Geological Survey compilation of
volcanic hazards for the five stratovolcanoes in Washington State (Mount St.
Helens, Mount Adams, Mount Rainier, Mount Baker, and Glacier Peak). The features
were generated by digitizing the volcanic hazard areas from simplified hazard
maps produced by the USGS. The database contains feature classes showing the
modeled extent of lahars, near-volcano hazards, regional lava flows, sediment,
and tephra (ash) that might affect Washington following a volcanic eruption. Note
that lahars can occur even when a volcano is not erupting. The original hazard
maps are available on the USGS website (http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/vsc/multimedia/cvo_hazards_maps_gallery.html)
