Water Resource Inventory Areas (WRIA) were formalized under Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-500-040 and authorized under the Water Resources Act of 1971, Revised Code of Washington (RCW) 90.54. Ecology was given responsibility for the development and management of these administrative and planning boundaries. These boundaries represent the administrative underpinning of this agency’s business activities. The original WRIA boundary agreements and judgments were reached jointly by Washington's natural resource agencies Ecology, Department of Natural Resources, and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in 1970 and were updated in 1998 and 2000.
For more WRIA information, visit Ecology's Watershed Updates by Water Resource Inventory Areas page, and see a list of WRIA Areas.
Points to note about WRIA maps:
To view the WRIA maps in PDF format, your computer needs to have Adobe Acrobat installed. The Adobe Acrobat Reader is free and available by clicking on the icon below:
If you are unfamiliar with using Adobe Acrobat, we have some tips on using Adobe Acrobat Reader with our maps.
All maps created using ESRI's ArcInfo 9.x, ArcPlot software.
Data for the WRIA maps comes from different sources. To obtain the digital data, please click on the link to the organization website.
