|Description||The 2018 Streamflow Restoration Act (Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill (ESSB) 6091) requires the Department of Ecology (Ecology) to determine that a Net Ecological Benefit (NEB) will result when adopting and approving:
• Watershed plan updates, as required under Section 202.
• Watershed restoration and enhancement plans under Section 203.
• Water resource mitigation pilot projects under Section 301.
This interim guidance will be used to evaluate plans that are completed within the next twelve months or later if there is prior agreement with Ecology, and for pilot projects being conducted under Section 301.
