Description When the Washington State Legislature created the Department of Ecology in 1970, it assigned to the new agency not only pollution control functions, but also a major resource management program. The Department of Ecology was given responsibility for the elaborate state administrative system for the control of water use. With the establishment of the new agency, the Legislature also created a quasi-judicial panel to hear and decide appeals from the agency’s decisions on permits and enforcement. From the outset, the Pollution Control Hearings Board (PCHB) has served as the primary trial forum in the state for litigation involving water resource management.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
