Program Overview

What to Look Forward to

We're excited to have Maia Bellon and Bill Clarke team up to co-chair this year's conference. We'll feature the key annual updates and the most pressing current topics.

We're a year into implementation of the Judge's decision resolving the 40-year Acquavella adjudication of surface water rights in the Yakima basin. We'll look at implementation lessons, prospects for future adjudications, and how they should be structured. This will be a particularly timely topic now that the Lummi Nation has petitioned for quantification of its federally reserved water rights.

Instream flow regulation continues to be a hot issue with the legislature looking into possible revisions to the SB 6091 legislative fix and results coming in from pilot projects.

Mark your calendar and stay tuned. We'll post additional topic information as we get farther along in the planning process. You won't want to miss this year's conference!
