Safeguarding the West includes more than four dozen action items generated by six ad hoc committees composed of federal, state, and tribal representatives that formed in the spring of 2017. The committees identified opportunities to
strengthen work across the following focal areas: watercraft inspection and decontamination, monitoring, research and  innovation, aquatic infrastructure, education and outreach, and policy and coordination. Each action item has a lead agency and point of contact. Many actions have been completed, and some are still in progress. Highlights of select actions are summarized below by bureau, followed by the implementation status of all actions.
