The planning group completed a draft watershed plan in June 2005, but was unable to reach consensus. The Squaxin Island Tribe voted against plan approval. Ecology continues to assist Kitsap County with water resource management issues. The county received a $50,000 integration grant from Ecology to facilitate discussions on salmon management, water quantity, and water quality issues with local cities. Representatives from cities, the county, and the Suquamish Tribe have formed the West Sound Watersheds Council to coordinate work on natural resource issues.
Ecology also awarded Kitsap County a capital grant for $264,000 in 2007 to develop four storm water storage facilities. The grant will pay for designing the system, estimating costs, and permitting. The facilities are being designed to improve stream flows and aquifer levels in the Barker Creek and Clear Creek basins. This grant came after a previous Ecology grant that helped the county identify potential sites for aquifer storage.
Instream flow status
Instream flows were set in 1981 (Chapter 173-515 WAC). Ecology does not plan to amend the existing rule.
