|Description||Ecology developed this proposed rule supporting document to describe the technical elements required by RCW 90.94.020 not captured in the proposed amended rule language, including findings and documentation to support the rulemaking. Consistent with the requirements of RCW 90.94.020, this rule supporting document includes:
• The consumptive use estimated for new domestic permit-exempt wells in the WRIA for the 20 year planning horizon (2018-2038);
• Projects and actions to offset potential impacts to instream flows associated with the new domestic permit-exempt domestic water use (2018-2038);
• Adaptive management planning provision; and
• An evaluation for NEB.
This document also explains:
• How the proposed rule amendment is integral to the consumptive water use analysis; and
• How the proposed rule amendment supports the offset projects listed in this document.
