Pierce Local Water Plan: Public Comment Period

Update as of July 31, 2018: The public comment period has ended, but you can still share your thoughts in person at the August 7 Board meeting. The meeting is open to the public and will be held at the Water and Environmental Center at 7 pm on August 7, 2018.

The Partnership plans to submit a new local water plan before the Board at the August 7 meeting. Created in collaboration with Larry Pierce, the LWP moves place of use and point of diversion on two water rights, facilitating stream flow by allowing Pierce to draw water from a spot where it is more available and less critical.

Pursuant to RCW 90.92, this plan will open for public comment for the 30-day period between July 1 and July 31, 2018. The full text of the plan can be found here.

If you'd like to comment, you have three options:

  1. File a written comment with the Partnership office, at: Walla Walla Watershed Management Partnership, Water and Environmental Center, Walla Walla Community College, 500 Tausick Way, Walla Walla, WA 99362.
  2. Submit a document via email to staff, at sam.chapman@wwcc.edu.
  3. Attend the Board meeting on August 7 and make your comment verbally.

These comments will be reviewed by the Walla Walla Watershed Management Partnership Board as well as the Board’s technical advisory committee.
