Water Quantity Citizen's Advisory Committee

As part of the permanent measures, Kittitas County will begin offering mitigation through a publicly-operated water bank starting December 2, 2015 or sooner. Kittitas County has formed a citizen's advisory committee to help formulate a recommendation on the quantity of water to be issued with a mitigation certificate from the future Kittitas County water bank. The committee will meet monthly starting October 2014 until a recommendation is formed to the Board of County Commissioners.

The mission of the Citizen's Advisory Committee is to develop a water quantity recommendation for a mitigation certificate for the Kittitas County water bank.

The charter for the Citizen's Advisory Committee is to gather information and formulate a recommendation on the quantity of water to be issued with a mitigation certificate for the Kittitas County Water Bank. Committee members will share resources and research issues affecting residential and outdoor water use to support an educated recommendation to the Board of County Commissioners on the quantity of water the county will offer with a mitigation certificate through the water bank.
