Green Meets Blue: Growth Management and Water

Water is our most essential resource. All uses of land – agricultural, residential, commercial, and industrial – require access to reliable water supplies; certainly economic growth cannot occur without water. While the relationship between land use and water is fundamental, Washington’s land use planning has been slow to integrate sustainable use of water resources at the local county building permit counter.

One of the pressure points is the increasing reliance on permit exempt wells to provide water to residences and subdivisions outside of urban growth boundaries. Permit exempt wells have been the subject of key court cases and several controversial bills in Olympia over the past few years. Join CELP and Futurewise for an update on integrating water use and quality with land use planning, featuring experts who have been in the cross-hairs.

Seminar culminates with a wine and cheese reception/presentation with Maia Bellon, Director of Washington State's Department of Ecology
