Water Typing Rule Committee
   

The Water Typing Rule Committee was established at the June 4, 2019, Forest Practices Board meeting. The committee will facilitate discussions between committee members, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, and TFW Policy representatives to develop and make recommendations to the Board on outstanding issues associated with the proposed water typing system. These meetings are open to the public. 
 
The Board has been actively developing a permanent water typing system rule since 2014. The rule will replace those adopted in 2001, and it will establish how to classify streams, lakes and ponds, including how to locate the water type break between stream segments containing fish habitat (Type F) and segments lacking fish habitat (Type N).
