Comment Form for Water Conservancy Board Records of Decision
(For Counties within Ecology's Central Region)

Please read the following before preparing and submitting comments:

Each Water Conservancy Board within the state of Washington is authorized to process water right change applications within their jurisdictions, and make records of decision on the proposed applications, which are then submitted to the Department of Ecology (Ecology) for final action.  This work is governed by the Revised Code of Washington (RCW) Chapters 90.03.380, 90.03.390, and 90.44.100.

Ecology reviews records of decision made by boards for compliance with applicable state water law, and conducts final review of each record of decision then issues an administrative order to affirm, modify, or reverse the record of decision.  This review must be completed within 45 days of receipt by Ecology, with a possible 30-day extension

Upon receipt of the board’s record of decision, Ecology posts it on the internet.  These postings can be found  on the Water Conservancy Boards Records of Decision page.
