|Description||In Washington State, prospective water users must obtain authorization from the Department of Ecology before using water, both surface or groundwater. Authorization is in the form of a water right permit. The only exception from this requirement is for certain small quantities of groundwater for specific uses. This fact sheet explains the water right permit exemption for groundwater uses.|
