Have increased demands for Washington State's ground water and surface water left sufficient stream flows for fish and other uses?
To find out, the state's Watershed Management Act of 1998 (ESHB 2514) confers on local people the responsibility for conducting local watershed planning.
The Elwha-Morse Watershed area was formed out of the western part of Water Resources Inventory Area 18 (WRIA 18) in Clallam and Jefferson Counties, Washington, and is managed by the Elwha-Morse Management Team. Under the terms of ESHB 2514, the team is responsible for assessing the water resources of its area and conducting hydrologic analyses to determine whether there is water enough for allocation.
The U.S. Geological Survey has assisted, in part, by gathering existing data, identifying sources of data and information, and assembling it in the centralized location of this web site, where it is easily accessible to everyone in the community.
