Description This form requires a prospective banker to describe the overall plan and intent for developing a new water bank. A prospective banker completing this form should provide as much information as possible to assist Ecology in evaluating the water banking proposal. Ecology will evaluate the request to determine whether to proceed with negotiation of a water banking agreement. Ecology may choose to decline to process the water banking request or defer the request until a later date. If Ecology chooses to proceed, this form will be used to provide notice to the public of the proposed water bank.
