Flow Restoration, Mitigation and Water Markets

As demands for surface and ground water in Washington increase to sustain residential growth, agriculture and industry, streams and aquifers become stressed--unable to support many aquatic and riparian species. Washington Water Trust (WWT) is a nonprofit organization that has been restoring stream flows in Washington state since 1998. Working cooperatively with irrigators, conservation districts, municipalities, agencies, tribes and other entities they use voluntary, market-based approaches to restore and conserve freshwater resources. Susan will describe restoration, mitigation and water banking strategies that help to achieve a balance between agricultural production, sustainable economic development and environmental goals. Using examples from around the state, she will touch on design and implementation details of water transactions that include leasing and purchase of water rights, water banking (Walla Walla, Dungeness, Kittitas), shallow aquifer recharge, source substitution and water conservation.

Susan Adams is the Executive Director of Washington Water Trust with 25 years of experience in management and policy development for natural resource issues in the Northwest. Prior to joining Washington Water Trust in 2005, Susan managed public relations, communications, natural resources education for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife and participated in regional water supply planning  the Portland metropolitan area to ensure sustainable water resources for future.  She is a graduate of Michigan State University.
