Description This report describes the Washington Water Acquisition Program, a voluntary initiative that offers monetary compensation to water-right holders who are willing to revert all or a portion of their right back to the state to benefit salmon. The Department of Ecology which manages state water supplies, will hold the water in trust to restore stream flows.
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.
