Want to know what’s happening at Tacoma’s Center for Urban Waters? You can visit a new Web site to learn the latest without having to stop by the center on the east side of the Thea Foss Waterway. The new Web site ( http://www.urbanwaters.org ) is a collaborative effort of the three partners in the facility, the City of Tacoma, University of Washington Tacoma and the Puget Sound Partnership. The site provides a one-stop look at the research and other activities at the center, as well as an overview of the LEED Platinum-designed facility itself. The Center for Urban Waters is a 51,000 square-foot office and laboratory building housing City of Tacoma Environmental Services labs and offices, University of Washington Tacoma researchers and offices for the Puget Sound Partnership. This collaboration brings together environmental scientists, analysts, engineers and policymakers to develop and apply the best possible science to restoring and protecting Puget Sound. Completed in Spring 2010, the Center for Urban Waters was designed to LEED Platinum standards, the highest level of environmental sustainability. The facility is at 326 East D Street on the east side of the Thea Foss Waterway, across from downtown Tacoma and not far from I-5.
