Description The purpose of the instream flow rule for WRIA 5 is to establish a water right for instream flows to satisfy the statutory directive to protect the instream resources of fish, wildlife, water quality, navigation, recreation, scenic, aesthetic and other environmental values. Instream flow requirements will be conditioned by permit proviso on new water right applications, or applications to change existing water rights that affect sources of water covered by the proposed rule.
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.
