The Washington State Department of Ecology plans to file their water rights adjudication lawsuit this Spring 2024. All water rights holders in Whatcom County, including farmers, will have to defend in court their right to use water.
On March 27, 2024, Whatcom Family Farmers, together with the Ag Water Board of Whatcom County, will host an informational event where water rights consultants from Aspect Consulting, Associated Earth Sciences, and RH2 Engineering, will discuss steps you can take to prepare for the upcoming WRIA 1 adjudication (water rights lawsuit).
Experienced water rights attorney, Bill Clarke, will also provide updated information and insight on the adjudication process and settlement possibilities.
Event will be held on March 27, 2024 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm at Northwest Washington Fairgrounds – Peoples Bank Farm Pavilion.
Attendees are encouraged to carpool as Gate 2 will be closed. Parking will be available in the Mount Bakery Rotary Building parking lot, and in the adjacent field along Stremler Dr.
Your RSVP is not required, but is appreciated so we know how many plan to attend.
