    general, southern Puget Sound is shallower with finer grained sediments than areas to the north. Water depth in Puget Sound increases rapidly with distance from the shore. The mean water depth is 62 m, with a maximum of m (Burns, ), and it takes approximately 5 months to completely exchange Puget Sound water with Pacific Ocean Size: KB. Oil in the sea from anthropogenic sources, whether from spills or chronic releases, is perceived as a major environmental problem. Major oil spills occur occasionally and receive considerable public attention because of the obvious attendant environmental damage, including oil-coated shorelines and dead or moribund wildlife, especially oiled seabirds and marine mammals.

Marine pollution was a concern during several United Nations Conventions on the Law of the Sea beginning in the s. Most scientists believed that the oceans were so vast that they had unlimited ability to dilute, and thus render pollution harmless.
