    Washington State Legislative Update

    presented by

    Noah Wentzel, WA Department of Ecology

    Noah is the Water Resources Program Legislative Coordinator for the Washington State Department of Ecology. He will be presenting bills introduced and enacted during Washington’s 2023 legislative session concerning water resource issues. Highlighting this year’s session were two Ecology agency-request bills relating to drought resilience and Walla Walla River integrated planning, both of which were passed by the legislature. Other water resource bills introduced this year related to water resource mitigation, municipal water right transfers, family farm permit transfers, and water infrastructure investments. Noah will discuss how these bills advanced through the legislature and how they may impact water resource management in Washington.

    We will kick off the evening with the December Board Meeting. AWRA-WA members are welcome to join the board meeting in person. Results of this year's AWRA-WA Board Election will be announced prior to Noah's presentation. AWRA-WA members in good financial standing should have received an email from ElectionBuddy to vote for next year's Board of Directors. If you did not receive an invitation to vote but feel you should have, please contact before December 10th for assistance.

    In-Person: Registration includes a meal from Ivar's wonderful dinner selection and one beverage of your choice. Additional drinks may be purchased separately. In-person registrations are limited, so we encourage you to register early and share this event with colleagues and friends! The deadline to register for attending in person is Sunday, December 10th.

    Virtual Option: For the convenience of members all over the state, we will be hosting a hybrid event. While the board meeting and full dinner experience can only be enjoyed by in-person attendees, a virtual option will be available for the election announcement and legislative update. Virtual attendees will receive a link to participate via our webinar service the day of the event. The deadline to register for attending virtually is Wednesday, December 13th.

    Thank you to Greene Economics for sponsoring the virtual platform.
