Public Support

Through cooperation and communication, there can be enough water for everyone.  That’s the core of the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan.  Our integrated approach to water management considers the needs of the environment, communities, farms, fish and wildlife, and that consideration is reflected in our broad base of community support.

Support for State Funding

In 2013, the Washington State legislature passed a bill ratifying its intent to adopt and fund 50% of the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan.  Learn more about who supported us, and why.

Support for Federal Funding

In 2015, Senators Maria Cantwell (D-Wash) and Patty Murray (D-Wash) introduced The Yakima River Basin Water Enhancement Phase III Act of 2015, a bill to authorize the first 10 years of the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan. This bill is currently moving through the U.S. Senate.  Click above to learn more about the groups who support this bill, or click here to contact us about contributing your support.

Fish. Families. Farms.
