The Water Storage Task Force was convened by the Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) at the direction of the 2000 state legislature.  The Task Force examined the role of increasing water storage to provide water for fish recovery, population and economic growth, and flood control.  The Task Force also considered funding options for constructing water-storage facilities. 

The Task Force was formed to examine issues and frame recommendations for the legislature. Members represented water utility districts, agriculture associations, city and county associations, Indian tribes, legislators, environmental interests, and state agencies.
