On June 4, 2019, Ecology adopted Chapter 173-167 WAC – Emergency Drought Funding, which establishes funding to public entities to implement projects and measures that alleviate undue hardship caused by drought conditions negatively affecting:
- The delivery of safe and reliable drinking water supplies.
- The survival of fish and wildlife.
- The viability of agricultural activities and livestock operations.
The 2019 Legislature appropriated $2 million for drought response. This rule describes eligibility criteria and funding limitations.
