Washington Legislature Adds "Certified Water Right Examiners" to Water Rights Process

Published Apr 02, 2010

Tupper Mack Wells attorney Sarah Mack analyzes water rights legislation in an article published in the April 2010 issue of Western Water Law & Policy Reporter. Specifically, she looks at the legislation to create a new category of “certified water right examiners” in Engrossed Second Substitute Senate Bill 6267 enacted by the Washington Legislature on March 11, 2010.

The new statute, part of a larger legislative package of water right processing improvements, provides for private “certified water right examiners” to perform final proof examinations of water right permits. The new “certified water right examiner” law is now codified at RCW 90.03.665.  For more information, contact Sarah Mack at mack@tmw-law.com.
