Description:
Abstract:
Drought Areas data description: This datalayer is derived from copying the designated WRIAsWRIAs data description: Water Resource Inventory Areas (WRIA) for Washington State at 1:24,000 scale. WRIAs were formalized under WAC 173-500-040 and authorized under the Water Resources Act of 1971, RCW 90.54. Ecology was given the responsibility for the development and management of these administrative and planning boundaries. These boundaries represent the administrative under pinning of this agency's business activities. The original WRIA boundary agreements and judgments were reached jointly by Washington's natural resource agencies (Ecology, Natural Resources, Fish and Wildlife) in 1970.
Purpose:
This datalayer is created to show the extent, by WRIA, of the declared drought areas in Washington State in 2015.
