The Columbia Basin GWMA Plan is the official ground water planning document for the implementation of strategies and best management practices for the protection of groundwater of the Columbia Basin. The GWMA Plan was adopted in 2001 by the Boards of Commissioners of Adams, Franklin, Lincoln and Grant Counties, and certified by the Washington State Department of Ecology in concurrence with the local citizen's recommendations.
Local citizens, stakeholders and elected officials from the 4-county region of the GWMA contributed thousands of hours in research and study time for the development of the GWMA Plan. The recommended strategies and practices outlined in the plan are non-regulatory and are implemented on a voluntary basis across the 4-county area to reduce or eliminate the need for state and federal agency mandated controls. These recommendations were developed by local citizens while keeping in mind the local agricultural, business, industrial and residential needs and concerns.
