A water conservancy board constitutes a public body corporate and politic and a separate unit of local government in the state. The board may sit in decision of the transfer of water rights, subject to the approval of the department of ecology. The board may establish a water right transfer information exchange through which all or part of a water right may be listed for sale or lease. The board may also accept and post notices in the exchange from persons interested in acquiring or leasing water rights from willing sellers. The board reviews applications for formal acceptance, prepares draft records of decision, and should consider other technical or legal factors affecting the board's development of a final record of decision. A board may request and accept additional technical assistance and support from the governments of the county in which it operates. The jurisdiction of a board shall not apply within the boundaries of a federal Indian reservation or to lands held in trust for an Indian band, tribe, or nation by the federal government. The board is an independently funded entity, and may accept grants and adopt fees for processing applications for transfers of water rights to fund the activities of the board. The board meets when necessary to review applications.

The Kittitas County Water Conservancy Board meets the third Tuesday of each month at the Kittitas County Conservation Dist 2211 W. Dollarway Road Suite #4 at 3:00 p.m.
