Description Ecology developed a Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) for its Aquatic Invasive Species Management Permitting Program for the chemical control of:

*Nonnative, invasive freshwater animals
*Nonnative, invasive marine animals
*Nonnative, invasive marine algae

This FEIS document analyzes reasonable alternatives for aquatic invasive species management, the probable significant adverse and beneficial environmental impacts of these alternatives, and their relation to existing policies, rules, and regulations. The FEIS does not include alternatives for removing aquatic invasive species from infrastructure such as dams or water intakes to keep them operational. This FEIS analyses five possible alternatives. The FEIS discusses the principle features and mitigation measures for each alternative in their respective sections. The information provided will aid decision-makers in assessing available alternatives and their appropriate application.
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.
