Ecology Hosting a Meeting in Walla Walla on Water Metering

From WA Dept. Ecology:
"Residents of the Walla Walla area will have a chance to get their questions answered about water measuring or "metering" at a public meeting being held in early April. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 5th, at the Walla Walla Community College. A Superior Court ruling required the Department of Ecology to measure 80 percent of the water being used in 16 river basins in Washington. These are the river basins where fish runs are the most threatened. Experts will explain the reasons for the requirement, who needs to comply and how to get financial help."
