Description The Department of Ecology (Ecology) is obligated under Chapters 90.82 and 90.54 RCW to set, and protect in-stream flows. The proposed rule, for the Entiat River Basin, sets instream flows that define flow levels needed for fish and all other instream values, and makes a reservation for beneficial use of 5 cfs. The 5 cfs is reserved as follows: 1 cfs for domestic use and stock watering, 3 cfs for commercial agriculture, and 1 cfs commercial/light industrial.

This document covers three economic analyses:
*maximum net benefit analysis under Chapter 90.54 RCW
*benefit-cost analysis under Chapter 34.05 RCW
*least burdensome analysis under Chapter 34.05 RCW
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.
