Vashon-Maury Island Water Resources Evaluation
The Vashon-Maury Island Water Resources Evaluation (WRE) was a project designed to describe and assess the water resources of the island from 2004-2010. This project will provide a better understanding of how different activities can adversely affect the island's water quality and quantity and lead to an updated, more accurate water supply budget for the island.

The WRE project is collected a variety of data to help assess the water resources on Vashon-Maury Island (VMI). The Project Documents page has a variety of reports relating to on-going monitoring and modeling.
Groundwater data is available on-line. Water quality and water level data can be searched via a map or by a text filter. Here's a map of groundwater sampling sites in 2006.
Stream and precipitation data is available on-line. Here's a map of gauge sites.
