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:
- 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.
- Submit a document via email to staff, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- 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.
