Proposed rule package available for review: main stem of river in Spokane County and small portion of Stevens County

This just in from Chris Anderson of the Department of Ecology Water Resources Program.

“The proposed rule package for the main stem of the river in Spokane County and a small portion of Stevens County is available for review.

You may recall, we solicited feedback from the community on a preliminary draft rule before entering the official rule making process.

State law requires a State Environmental Policy Act determination and an economic analysis for the rule.  These draft documents are also available for review and comment.

You can provide comments on the proposed rule through an online feedback system or by emailing Ann Wessel (  through Nov. 7, 2014.

We are also hosting an open house at 6 p.m. followed by a public hearing from at 7p.m. Oct. 22, 2014, at CenterPlace Regional Event Center in Spokane Valley.

Thank you for your continued interest. Keeping water in the Spokane River is a priority for all of us. We all want a clean and flowing river.”

Thank you,
Chris Anderson
