Final Environmental Impact Statement - April 2001

Forest Practices Rules for Aquatic Resources

This FEIS analyzed three alternatives to amend Title 222 WAC after the Washington State Legislature enacted the Salmon Recovery Act (Chapter 4, Laws of 1999). The legislation encouraged the Forest Practices Board to follow recommendations of the April 29, 1999 Forests and Fish Report when adopting rules for the protection of aquatic resources. The Board adopted emergency rules in 1999 and permanent rules in 2001.

The forest practices rules can be found at http://www.dnr.wa.gov/BusinessPermits/Topics/ForestPracticesRules/Pages/fp_rules.aspx
