Abstract

DOHRMANN: The Puget Sound Water Quality Authority is involved in water quality planning for Puget Sound; our concern is that the regulatory framework and structure be responsive to perceived and possible threats to the environment. We don’t generally get involved in specific technologies. We work a lot with the public, in terms of public perceptions of environmental problems and of potential, future environmental problems. Instead of wearing my Authority hat, I’ll try to project what I see as some of the probable public concerns with biotechnologies. I’ve been listening to these talks, looking at the posters, and reading through the abstracts; frankly, some of this stuff scares me to death.
