Description Single page fact sheet outlines how Washington streams and wetlands remain protected after U.S. Supreme Court decision weakened federal protections for some water bodies across the nation. Document outlines how Ecology is responding using state-driven processes and potential changes that could be made to streamline state permitting actions for some development proposals affecting state waters.
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.
