Description One of the Department of Ecology’s highest priorities is to help ensure there is enough water to meet the present and future needs of people and the natural environment. And protecting stream flows - that is, the naturally varying amount of water flowing in a stream or river - is one of our most important water management tools. Specific stream flow amounts protected in a regulation are called instream flows.
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.
