PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT DURING A DISASTER & EVERY DAY

The City invites the community to join Water Quality Program Coordinator Ryean-Marie Tuomisto, as she delves into the environmental side of a natural disaster and outlines ways the community can be better prepared to protect the environment in the case of an emergency. 

In addition to having a dramatic and widespread impact on infrastructure and emergency resources, natural disasters can mobilize environmental contaminants, causing them to enter our streams, wetlands and lakes. Tuomisto will highlight a few simple and proactive techniques that can help mitigate the negative environmental impacts of a natural disaster and keep contaminants out of our waterways. 

Tuomisto is the Water Quality Program Coordinator for the City of Kirkland. She is passionate about protecting Kirkland’s wetlands, streams and lakes from pollution, and ensuring that the natural habitat remains safe for the community to enjoy. She graduated from the University of Idaho with a Master of Science in Geochemistry and has over 20 years of experience in the environmental compliance field.
