Tracking Washington Water Banks

Last revised: April 26, 2017

In the 2016 legislative session Senate Bill 6179 made changes to RCW 90.42.130 that requires Ecology to maintain the following water bank information:

The following tables provide the information required by RCW 90.42.130 for all the water banks in Washington State.  Those basins that currently have active water banks include:
