3rd Annual Joint AWRA-WA & Washington Hydrologic Society Meeting


Washington State Legislative Update

Jennifer Holderman, Dept. of Ecology


Jennifer will discuss bills introduced and enacted during the 2014 Washington Legislative Session concerning water resource issues. The legislature considered several issues during this session: local governments participating in water banks, managing the cost of water infrastructure, agency reform, using drones for government surveillance of water use, Whatcom County berry growers, legislative response to Swinomish v DOE and Hirst v Whatcom County, Capital Budget revisions and irrigation districts and hydropower. Jennifer will provide an update on how these bills progressed through the legislative process and how these laws may impact program policy. She will also provide a sneak peak of the 2015 legislative session, specifically strategies concerning rural water supply.


Jennifer Holderman is a water resource planner with the Department of Ecology in the Water Resources Program. Her work primarily focuses on legislative coordination, rural water supply issues and reclaimed water policy development. Prior to working at the Department of Ecology, she worked for a watershed council located in Manzanita, OR. Jennifer holds a MS in Water Resources from Oregon State University and a JD from the University of Oregon.
