The report, delivered this week to the Washington Legislature, is required under the state’s new Columbia River water law. It is available online at, click on the “Managing our Water” icon. Written in two sections, the report includes a water-supply inventory, and a long-term water supply and demand forecast. It also identifies conservation and storage projects that might be used to meet future water needs."
