Kittitas (pronounced 'kit-i-tass') County is located in central Washington
State. It spans from the lush forested Cascade Mountains to the upper Yakima River Valley plains and
the Columbia River.
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.
Kittitas County has a total area of 2,333 square miles. The highest point in the county is Mount Daniel at 7,959 feet above sea level.
