Description This study was initiated in response to a memorandum of November 8, 1972
from Duane E. Wegner, Resource Management Supervisor of the Northwest
Regional Office, Department of Ecology, requesting the evaluation of a
ground-water application north of the community of Eastsound on Orcas
Island. The application was for an amount of withdrawal which seemed
excessive and caused concern that the lowering of the water level would
lead to contamination of the aquifer by sea water encroachment.
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.
