Water Resources Adjudication Assessment Legislative Report
Water Resources Adjudication Assessment Legislative Report (Number of pages: 178) (Publication Size: 15023KB)
|Author(s)||McPherson, Robin and Adjudication Staff|
|Description||In 2019, the Legislature directed the Department of Ecology “to assess and explore opportunities to resolve water rights uncertainties and disputes through adjudications in selected basins where tribal senior water rights, unquantified claims, and similar uncertainties about the seniority, quantity, and validity of water rights exist.” Over the last year, we have reviewed watersheds around the state to determine which areas are most ready to begin an adjudication process. Through this assessment, we have identified the Nooksack and Upper Columbia/Lake Roosevelt watersheds as priority basins to begin this work.|
