|Description||The 2018 Streamflow Restoration law (Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill (ESSB) 6091), now codified primarily in chapter 90.94 RCW, requires the Department of Ecology (Ecology) to determine that a Net Ecological Benefit (NEB) will result prior to adopting:
• Watershed plan updates as required under RCW 90.94.020.
• Watershed restoration and enhancement plans as required under RCW 90.94.030.
• Water resource mitigation pilot projects under RCW 90.94.090.
This guidance establishes Ecology’s interpretations of NEB.
