This document provides a summary of all post-installation environmental monitoring planned for Snohomish County Public Utility District's tidal energy pilot demonstration project in northern Admiralty Inlet, Puget Sound, Washington. Since several technical aspects of post-installation environmental monitoring remain under development, the monitoring approach described here may change prior to turbine development. The objective is to provide a concise summary of proposed monitoring activities in order to provide context for individual monitoring plans. Section 2 describes the tidal turbines and their deployment locations. Section 3 provides a summary of plan objectives and the rationale for pursuing these objectives. Section 4 describes the monitoring infrastructure and instrumentation. Section 5 describes how these resources are proposed to address the specific hypotheses.
