|Description||In 1998, the Washington State Legislature established the Washington State Watershed Planning Act (WPA) to address water quantity, quality and habitat issues for individual surface water basins in the state. Codified under Chapter 90.82 RCW, the WPA was designed to allow people that live, work and recreate within a watershed to collaborate on how they want water within their watershed to be managed for the future. The WPA signifies the state’s commitment to provide for both a growing population and economy, and for the integrity of the natural watershed system.
Watershed planning in the Little Spokane River and Middle Spokane River basins was started by a group of Initiating Governments including the City of Spokane, Spokane County, Stevens County, Pend Oreille County, Whitworth Water District, and Vera Water and Power. The Spokane Tribe was invited but elected to not participate. The Initiating Governments formed one Planning Unit that voluntarily led the watershed planning effort. The objectives of this watershed planning effort were to: gather information, address water resource issues, provide local management of water resources in WRIAs 55/77 and coordinate and consolidate water management practices.
