Description What homeowners, builders and real estate agents need to know about water for a new home or project

This fall, the Dungeness watershed is expected to have a new water management rule (WAC 173-518). The rule would protect existing water rights, guide decisions on new water uses, and establish instream flows to help protect streams in eastern Water Resources Inventory Area (WRIA) 18. This area encompasses part of eastern Clallam County.
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.
