Public can comment on projects in, around state waters
The Washington Department of Fish &Wildlife is seeking public comments on proposed updates to state Hydraulic Code rules, which regulate construction and other work in or near state waters to protect fish life.
Common projects requiring approval under the state’s hydraulic rules include work on bulkheads, culverts, piers and docks.
Fish &Wildlife will accept written comments through Aug.15 on the proposed rules, a related draft environmental impact statement, and a small business economic impact statement.
All documents related to this rulemaking activity are available on the department’s website at wdfw.wa.gov/licensing/hpa/rulemaking/, along with an email address for submitting comments.
Lisa Veneroso, who leads WDFW’s habitat program, said the changes proposed in the Hydraulic Code rules will provide more protection for fish, streamline the permit process and ensure the code is consistent with other state laws.
Veneroso said WDFW habitat biologists review approximately 4,000 applications each year for those permits, known as Hydraulic Project Approvals.
