This rulemaking would adopt WAC 173-566  – Streamflow Restoration Funding, a new rule for the implementation of Chapter 1, Laws of 2018 (ESSB 6091) and Chapter 90.94 RCW. 
The Streamflow Restoration Funding program will finance watershed planning projects under RCW 90.94.020, watershed restoration and enhancement projects under RCW 90.94.030, and the collection of data and completion of studies necessary to develop, implement, and evaluate watershed restoration and enhancement projects under Chapter 1, Laws of 2018, statewide.
Documents for review 
We write rules to implement and enforce state and federal environmental laws and rules.  Ecology follows a 3-phase process for rulemaking:
  1. Announcement and development
  2. Proposal
  3. Adoption
For each phase of the process, we update the rulemaking web page and notify interested parties. We also file notice in the Washington State Register. To learn more about Ecology’s rulemaking process, read the Frequently Asked Questions.
