Description The state departments of Ecology, Fish and Wildlife and Washington Conservation Commission have launched the Washington Water Acquisition Program, a voluntary program designed to increase stream flows in 16 watersheds with vulnerable fish populations.

The water acquisition program gives farmers, ranchers and other water right holders an opportunity to join in state fish recovery efforts by selling, leasing or donating their water rights to streams where critically low flows limit fish survival.
