The Water Resources Advisory Committee (WRAC) is a forum for issues related to water resources management in Washington state.

This membership represens state agencies, local governments, water utilities, tribes, environmental groups, consultants, law firms, and other water stakeholders. Typical discussion topics include rules, policies, legislation, budget development, and litigation. The group was established in 1996.


Unless notice is provided otherwise, WRAC meetings are held from 9 a.m. to noon on the second Monday of every month at our headquarters building in Lacey. Anyone who is interested in water resources management in Washington is welcome to attend.

February 11- Meeting Canceled - see email sent to WRAC ListServ

  • Agenda - removed, meeting canceled
  • We are proposing draft changes to two policies. The goal of the revisions is to clarify how the program treats permits that have been put to full beneficial use, but not yet certified, and to update the policies to reflect current law. The current version of each policy is available in the links below along with the revised versions for comparison. Please note:
    • We have almost completely rewritten POL 1060; therefore, specific changes are not highlighted.
    • We added specific language to POL 1200, which is indicated in blue text. We did not change the remainder of the policy.
    • We would like your feedback on the proposed changes. Please send comments to Carrie Sessions by Mar. 29: (carrie.sessions@ecy.wa.gov, 360 407 6094).
