Skagit River basin studies
Science and analysis are the basis of our decision-making in the Skagit River basin:
- We based the Skagit River basin instream flow rule on fish studies.
- The Skagit task force recommends and develops scientific studies in the basin.
- Examining potential mitigation and water supply options supports our ongoing search for viable long-term water supply solutions for future rural development.
- Groundwater studies help us determine where and how much mitigation is needed to offset the impacts on streams from new water uses.
