Description The water right document (the permit, certificate, or claim) is the place to begin your research. This focus sheet describes the maximum limits of the water right, as well as the provisions governing the use of that water. It addresses the water right document, changes to water rights, historical uses of water and a special discussion on Water Right Claims.
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.
