Description: The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) and the Washington State Ferries (WSF), in order to improve water quality in Puget Sound, embarked on a project to remove creosote-treated timber from its 19 ferry terminals. The creosote has been found to be toxic to fish, marine organisms, and humans, so as part of its commitment to integrate habitat concerns into the design and maintenance of its terminals the WSF began replacing the timber structures with steel or concrete pilings. This project has dramatically improved the water quality in the waters surrounding the terminals in Puget Sound.
