Description The Washington State Department of Ecology’s (Ecology) Water Resources Program is proposing to amend an instream resources protection and water resources program for the Skagit River basin. The Skagit River Basin is designated as Water Resource Inventory Areas 3 and 4 (WRIA 3 & 4) in chapter 173-500 Washington Administrative Code (WAC). The existing rule is chapter 173-503 WAC. Ecology is developing and issuing this Small Business Economic Impact Statement (SBEIS) as part of its rule adoption process.

The objective of this SBEIS is to identify and evaluate the various requirements and costs that the proposed rule might impose on business. In particular, the SBEIS examines whether the costs on businesses that might be imposed by the proposed rule impose a disproportionate impact on the State’s small businesses.
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.
