Aquatic Districts and Land Managers Map
   

The on-the-ground stewardship and day-to-day work with marinas and other aquatic lessees is led by our three Aquatic Districts across the state. Washington’s 2.6 million acres of state-owned aquatic lands includes the marine waters of Puget Sound, the coast and the Straits of Juan de Fuca, and the navigable rivers and lakes across the state. We carry out the hands-on management of these lands for all the people of Washington, and protect and enhance this legacy of aquatic natural resources for this and future generations. 
 
We write leases for marinas, docks, businesses and shellfish beds; we contract for cleanup of toxic materials, fight noxious weeds that can destroy valuable aquatic ecosystems, and we restore habitat that has been destroyed. We strive to find the balance that supports public use and access, water-dependent uses, the use of renewable resources, and environmental protection.
 
We value our work with so many public and private partners and volunteers that help us accomplish projects needed on state aquatic lands throughout Washington.
